I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, and I need no other flight to convince me that the reason flyers fly, whether they know it or not, is the esthetic appeal of flying.

In Plane View: Abstractions Of Flight By Carolyn Russo (powerhouse Books, 2008, 1576874052). Featuring photos taken by Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum photographer Carolyn Russo, this book directs your attention to the often-overlooked beauty behind an aircraft's design. Diamondback by Phil Bowie (Medallion Press, 2007, 1933836431). The autobiography chronicles a lifetime of flying that began in 1941 when Keefe flew a Piper J-3 Cub on skis while in the Civilian Pilot Training program.

In Plane View: Abstractions of Flight, by Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum photographer Carolyn Russo, redirects our attention to the often-overlooked simple beauty of aircraft design. With precedents in the work of Robert Delaunay, Charles Sheeler, and Arshile Gorky, among others, Russo uses fine art photography to bring out new visual dimensions of these powerful symbols of the 20th century, transforming them into works of art. Russo’s striking color photographs distill the complexity of civil and military airplanes and spaceships into bold combinations of line, shape, light, and color. Beautiful in themselves, Carolyn Russo’s photographs become even more intriguing when we learn their source: the iconic air and space craft of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. Through her unconventional approach Russo reveals new layers of meaning, from the whimsical to the profound, in the appearance of some of history’s most revered flying machines. Juxtaposing her playful and discerning eye, scholarly text from NASM and the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery provides fresh perspectives on flight and photography that will leave audiences looking at the world with new eyes. The book features 90 color photographs, quotes by aviators, artists, and poets, historical captions on each aircraft, and interpretive essays by Anne Collins Goodyear, assistant curator of prints and drawings at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, who specializes in the relationship of art, science, and technology.

This is a book of beauty. It's not a catalogue of airplanes -- there are plenty other books like that -- this is a collection of pieces of photographic art. There are quotes and some intelligent interesting background information on each plane or spacecraft; but the stars are the almost abstract stunning photographs. The jet intake of a MiG-21F, a peeling paint close-up of Gemini IV, the lines of a Grob 103, the exhaust nozzle of an F-104A Starfighter. It's a Technicolor high-def love affair with mechanical bits of aviation history. Worth getting a coffee table for . . .

Bought this as a gift for a friend and he loved it. The book is printed in amazing quality and the photographs are very unique-- they show beautiful aspects of aircrafts that one does not usually notice or see. Would definitely recommend.

This is a beautiful book and and excellent comprehensive collection of aircraft. I wish the images were more abstract and the book layout more minimal to make the most of the abstracted details.

The photos in this book are fantastic. The few you can see on the preview are beautiful, but do not even begin to do justice to the rest of the book. The shots are unique - ones I haven't seen in other compilations and focused on aspects of the plane I would not have personally thought of. I purchased it for a pilot who loved it. He spent hours pouring over it and still pulls it back out.

If your into aircraft photos, this is the book for you, shots taken at weird angles makes it fun and different

I got to view the traveling Smithsonian exhibit this book is based upon, at the Dallas Frontiers of Flight museum at Dallas Love Field Airport, today. I was so impressed by the compositions and colors that I had to run to the gift shop to find a book of the collection. They had just stocked the book, today, and the clerk did not know what it was, so I was lucky to stumble across it, autographed, no less. This is not a collection of airplane photos - it is a study in the beauty created by the engineering which the artist found in the details. I try to accomplish a similar effect with my own photography, so I am looking to this book for inspiration. The text with each image describes the component and aircraft each image is made from, and gives its historical context. Amazon's price is much less than I paid.
