Accordion structure artist book that celebrates the women of aviation’s history. Quotations from these pioneer women are paired with handmade paper collages depicting a runway, a compass, a flight formation and a flag.
I have lifted my plane . . . for perhaps a thousand flights and I have
never felt her wheels glide from the Earth into the air without knowing
the uncertainty and the exhilaration of first-born adventure.
First person to fly solo across the
Atlantic Ocean the “hard way” against
the headwinds, 1936
