" ... Explores a variety of very current, often controversial themes including sensory overload in our digital age, industrial espionage, and reaching the end of the career ladder. [Van Der Veken's] seemingly simple style helps him to disarm such topics with charm and the wink of an eye without ever making fun of them, trivializing them, or being presumptuous. In the book's introduction, James Cartwright elucidates the compelling approach of Jan Van Der Veken, and accompanying texts by respected Belgian illustrator Ever Meulen and Joost Swarte provide further insight"--Page 4 of cover.

One of the most distinctive illustrators from the motherland of comics: Belgium. Illustrator Jan van der Veken has developed a personal technique that melds the 'international style', art deco, and Belgium's comics tradition into a visual language that is contemporary and timeless. Though some of his work might seem simple, it is always thought through to the last detail. Van der Veken works with a limited color palette and uses lines sparingly. He creates his own typefaces in the style of the 1920s or 1950s. To give structure to the individual visual elements, he often uses an isometric perspective - similar to that used by the best-known designers of the Bauhaus era. Influenced by Hergé's iconic 'atom style' and ligne claire, his book covers, posters, and editorial illustrations for international publishing houses and magazines have succeeded in capturing the mid-twentieth-century's rational yet pioneering spirit.

Budding aviation fans will pore over every page of this fascinating encyclopedic guide to the history and mechanics of flight, from the Wright Brothers to wind shear. How does a plane move through the air? What is turbulence? What do those lines on the runways mean? All these questions and many more are answered in this gorgeously illustrated history of airplanes and flight. The book opens with a basic introduction to plane anatomy and shows how aircrafts have developed over the ages. From there readers will learn about aerodynamics, the mechanics of wing shape and lift, and how ailerons, propellers, and flaps work. There's even a section on communications systems, runway design, and GPS. Profiles of famous historic planes illustrate basic principles throughout the book. Readers will learn about record-breaking flights across continents and oceans; how "flying wings" evolved into the B-2 bomber; and where the world's most treacherous runways are located. A section on experimental aircraft looks at the zeppelins, flying cars, and the fate of the Concorde jet. Jan Van der Veken's lushly colored, retro drawings detail everything from plane design to the physics of flight and provide the perfect companion to his engaging text. Budding aviators will linger over every detail of this information-packed book that serves both to demystify and celebrate the miracle of flight.
