By Air: *Pack of Playing Cards

The dream of human flight is as old as civilisation itself.

Man has always been fascinated by flight.

Here is a collection of flying machines which have evolved over the centuries from the time of Leonardo Da Vinci to the present day.

Starting with legends of the Gods and superhuman, the search to invent machines that could take us safely into the air and then on into space has preoccupied the minds of some of the world’s greatest thinkers, scientists and engineers for thousands of years.

This deck of 54 illustrated playing cards tells the story of aviation milestones, it is a fact and fun-filled celebration of human air transport.

It follows the great and dangerous journey of discovery, from man-lifting kites to paragliders, balloons to Concorde, the Wright Brothers to Yuri Gagarin.
