The art used by airlines back in the halcyon days of aviation - when it was just for the rich - provide us with graphic testament to the romance and the wonder of flying to far off continents. There's a wonderful book called En Route: Label Art From The Golden Age of Air Travel. It's out of print but still available at Amazon.com for as little as $3.06. It's worth a lot more. Interestingly it's co-written by Michael O'Leary, but not that Michael O'Leary!
