'Warbirds' Collects Adam Tooby's Outstanding Aviation Art

"Warbirds: The Aviation Art of Adam Tooby"

Adam Tooby specializes in aviation art and runs a gallery called Finest Hour Art. His work has graced the boxes of UK model manufacturer Airfix  and now Titan Books has published an edition of his work in Warbirds: The Aviation Art of Adam Tooby.

The images in the 188-page  book range from World War I all the way up to the our current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and, not surprisingly, have a British tilt since Adam's from the UK. The book features sections that give a step-by-step look at Adam's work process as well as some historical context for each image. We've got a really impressive slide show below. Blow up the images to full size if you've got a big monitor.
