Design Series: The Art of Airline Maps (#60)
Airline maps?! What could be exciting about that? Plenty, when you join #nerdbirds Brendan and Rachel as they browse through the book Airline Maps: A Century of Art and Design and explore the evolution of flying through the world of graphic design. Topics include maps as a tool to inspire wanderlust, women in aviation’s early days, and the darker sides of the Golden Age of Flying.
