Nicolas Trudgian and an amazing 125 Second World War Combat Veterans


11" 1/4 x 9" 3/4  Multi Signed Remarqued Book
Price £0.00


This much anticipated new book features more than one hundred superb pencil drawings by the leading exponent of aviation landscapes . Most of the work presented in this book has been created especially for it and displays the uniquely detailed and precise style of this widely collected artist. An excitingly wide selection of aircraft is shown, from the fragile machines over the trenches of the Western Front to shapes that seem to be from another world like the SR71 Blackbird and the Sukhoi Flanker. Along the way there are many old favourites, especially of the Second World War, and even here are some 'rare birds' like the dornier 355, the Ta152 and the Boulton Paul Defiant. The drawings reflect the fascinating development of aviation in the twentieth Century, the many beautiful forms of these aircraft and the aircrews' heroic exploits in every corner of the world. It is rare for an artist with such obvious aptitude for mechanical subject matter also to be able to capture the beauty and atmosphere of the world's landscapes, and yet Nicolas Trudgian achieves this with both pencil and paintbrush. This book, devoted exclusively to his pencil work, is complemented by a number of aircrew who have added their personal recollections, some humorous, some poignant, about their experiences in the air and on the ground, embellishing a volume which readers will enjoy returning to again and again...This is one of a very Limited edition of only 30 Remarques and has a remarkable Drawing of the Fokker DR1 A25/7 Triplane of the Legendary Red Baron " Manfred Von Ricthofen " it is No 2 of 30...Also this particular book has been incredibly signed by 125 Combat Veterans from WWII...They include Rare signatures from the Luftwaffe , RAF Bomber Command , RAF Fighter Command , Mosquito Air Crew and even a German Panzer Knights Cross Holder...It is impossible to list them all here on the website but a complete list is available from the Gallery...
