Those of you who know Robert Taylor's art work will know what to expect from this book. Those of you don't, then you will be treated to some superb sketches and paintings which mainly focus on World War 2 aviation scences. Taylor has an excellent eye for detail and realism and researchs his subject(s) to ensure that his paintings are more than just realistic, they are factual. In this book he talks about how some of his paintings were done, along with comments from some of his subjects such as Adolf Galland, Townsend, Johnnie Johnson etc. The book includes 24 of his paintings, including some of my favourites "Dambusters","JG-52", "Victory over Dunkirk" all of which are on good quality paper. This is a quality book which displays the master's work and the master at work and highly recommended, although some may find the price a little prohibitive.
Splendid paintings, terrific drawings, historic informations everywhere and a foreword by none less than 'Johnnie' Johnson! This book takes the reader through the wonderful and time-consuming process which Robert Taylor takes to produce a painting. From white canvas to paintings able to tell a whole history each, the reader is take on a journey through several air combat scenarios.
