Limited edition of 500 copies. Click for larger image ...Stunning collection of four complete Air War Stories with all interior art by Ferdinando Tacconi.
Originally published in War Picture Library 49 and Air Ace Picture Library 11, 37 and 54, these four stories showcase the art of the great Ferdinando Tacconi. Tacconi's style is immediately recognisable, with a very clear linework and some interesting curlicues done in pen and ink.
He wisely used an uncluttered linework that, with the passage of time, became more and more limited to the essential. The care he applied to the environment and details of each panel he drew, especially in his way of presenting vehicles or his beloved aircraft, made him one of the top artists around the world.
In fact, Tacconi would never hide his deep love for flying machines, which accompanied him throughout his career, both inside and outside the comic pages he drew. Broken Wings
