A deluxe copy of the book 'The Art of William S Phillips - The Glory of Flight’ with a matching-numbered copy of the Limited Edition print Into the Throne Room of God.

Released in 1994 by American publishing company Greenwich Workshop, this is one of the most lavishly presented limited edition aviation art book and print sets ever produced.
The Art of William S Phillips - The Glory of Flight

William Phillips has been regarded by many as the leading American aviation artist over the last 30 years. The Glory of Flight is a superb celebration of his work bringing together a large collection of both well known and not so often seen images. The book is structured around flying from the aircrew perspective, rather than historic periods or aircraft types. Phillips’ style is big and bold with strong use of colour and tonal contrast and he is not afraid of trying compositions and lighting effects that have not been done before. The book layout presents this to good effect with many large double page spreads and even a couple of fold-outs.  Aircraft types covered range from the Wright brothers to the F14, introduction is by pilot Stephen Coonts and the artist modestly only dedicates a couple of pages to himself.

Into the Throne Room of God by William Phillips

Into the Throne Room of God
Matching-numbered and signed limited edition print.

Into the Throne Room of God - presentation cover

The print is presented in the original custom made sleeve with matching gold block lettering.
A second print is supplied as part of the package - a small print taken from a William Phillip’s drawing of P-39 Airacobras.


Overall both items are in exceptional condition. This book was purchased from new from ourselves by the seller and has spent almost all of its life stored on a book shelf, only rarely being opened or handled. The cloth library sleeve looks like new. Inside the book is excellent with little sign of ever being opened and read. The print is as new having been stored since its purchase in the presentation sleeve which is itself in ‘as new’ condition.
