An excellent large format collection of the superb aviation art of Christophe Gibelin!
For the last seven years, Gibelin has created digital paintings for the covers of the magazine Le Fana de l'Aviation. This book gathers all of these images and others. Over 60 finished paintings are reproduced as full-page illustrations (or as double-page illustrations in 7 fold-out pages), and on opposing pages, pencil drawings, published and unpublished, and paintings in progress showing his process.
Gibelin's perspectives and compositions are unique in bringing the viewer into the action as if looking on from another plane in formation.
60 different planes are depicted, including the Spitfire, Corsair, P-51, SR-71, F-86, F-4, F-14, F-22, Mig-15, Mig-17, Mirage III, and Mirage 4000.
