Working in the studio of an advertising agency was the starting point for John Young’s lifetime as a professional artist.  A founding member and previous Chairman of the Guild of Aviation Artists, John’s paintings have won many prestigious awards.
In the first part of the book John Young recounts in detail his experiences, influences and the development of his career as an artist, this section being illustrated with many of his pencil sketches.  The latter half is dedicated to colour plates of John’s paintings of which there are nearly 50.  Overall the book is produced to a very high standard and is a fitting tribute to John Young’s aviation art.

A full review can be found in the Book Review section of the site under One Artist Books.

Condition: This is a first edition full size hardback book. The book is in very good condition with little evidence of having been handled, having a tight binding and good clean, unmarked pages. The dust jacket is generally good but with some evidence of shelf wear, slight discolouration and a little creasing on the reverse. Overall this is a good example of this rare title.

Colour plates: 45
Pages: 96
