Art Deco Airports - the world’s first airports in the 1920s and 1930s


Art Deco Airports


By Terry Moyle

Art Deco Airports delves into the design and role of the world’s first airports in the 1920s and 1930s. With original images, comprehensive and dandy illustration by international aviation artist Rosie Louise and text by author Terry Moyle, the book explores the relationship between airports, aviation and Art Deco.



These first airports were not only concerned with commercial air transport but were also an important social venue. Millions of spectators flocked to airports each year and helped define aviation’s ‘Golden Age’. The airport architects also celebrated the achievement of flight in designs that were regional, as well as modern and functional. Art Deco Airports recreates this period with detailed and atmospheric depictions of the buildings, aircraft and fashions to create a beautiful and essential aviation book.

With profiles on 33 different airports in Great Britain, Europe and the United States, Art Deco Airports provides both specialist and armchair passengers with a window on an exotic lost world.
