The book contain collection of the art, which one could find on the military aircraft in WW2 and Korean War. Sadly this book is only USA aircrafts, which is kind of pity. However the art adoring planes brings the spirit of the long gone vehicles and men. Some of them are pin up girls, other popular cartoons or other funny pictures. It is must have in bookshelf. By the way the pro artist like Vargas and Brinkman were behind some very nice pieces.

Photo study of nose art from WWII and Korea. At the end of the day thats all it is, nothing great but not horrible either.
