A beautifully presented, two-volume collection, uniquely chronicling the story and history of the most recognizable aircraft of WWII and the pinup girls whose images graced these legendary warbirds. Flying into combat with our boys, inspiring and providing our U.S. soldiers with sweetly seductive reminders of home, these pinups are a reminder of the All-American good life GIs were fighting for. For the first time, Michael Malak has merged classic 1940s style Hollywood photographs in black and white and sepia recreations for the vintage at heart, as well as full-color HDR (High Dynamic Range) photographs for the modern art lover. These Books take the viewer through the history of these magnificent warbirds and the role they played in WWII, and provides detailed, factual information about each of them courtesy of the Yanks Air Museum, home of these exquisite warbirds. Several world-renowned pinup artists of today, such as Greg Hildebrandt, have contributed their time and talent to take part in this project, providing original artwork for Wings of Angels in the tradition of legendary pinup artists Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas. Hardbound, Vol.1 is approx. 143 pages and Vol. 2 is 159 pages.
