To have one volume of paintings published would see many artists reach the pinnacle of their career, but Robert Taylor is something special. Widely acknowledged as the foremost aviation artist in the history of the genre, this new volume in his best-selling Air Combat Paintings series is, incredibly, Volume SIX! Already being spoken of as the finest volume of his works ever published, this new edition brings you his very latest and up to date work accompanied by informative text written with refreshing originality.
This wonderful new 128 page case-bound book is printed on heavy weight art paper and contains over 70 images reproduced in full colour, supported by a host of beautiful drawings and informative photographs, including many images never previously seen, and gold-blocked titles emblazon the spine.
Readers will experience some of the world’s greatest air battles
as visualised by the world’s master of aviation art, and the story
of how these masterworks came into existence.
Together with a 27,000 word text, the book contains the significant and valuable contribution of Peter Jackson who has written the Foreword. New Zealander Peter Jackson is a multi Academy award winning film director, producer and screenwriter, best known for directing ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy of films, and his 2005 remake of the classic ‘King Kong’. 'The Lovely Bones' is due to be released in late 2009 and among his latest projects is a remake of the classic 1954 film of ‘The Dam Busters’. A lifelong aviation enthusiast, he is an avid collector of aviation memorabilia and art, and has long been a fan of Robert Taylor’s work.
