The Art of Flying: Literary Itinerary

When air travel was made commercially available to all, it was regarded as the height of sophistication – this was an era when fashion, politics and attitudes were becoming revolutionised, and flying became a part of this new and glamorous generation.

Assouline has released an elegant and informative new tome entitled The Art of Flying which is dedicated to all aspects of air travel from its very roots through to the engineering of the future.

The book documents the whole in-flight experience, including cabin-crew uniforms designed by Dior, private jets, celebrity passengers and extravagant interiors. 

In the modern world, it’s often easy to forget how lucky we are to have such advanced technology so readily available, but Assouline’s coffee-table read is bound to make you fall in love with flying all over again. 

The Art of Flying, £115, text by Josh Condon, published by Assouline. Available at Maison Assouline, 196a Piccadilly, W1J and Assouline at Claridge’s, Brook Street, W1K
