Airline Visual Identity 1945-1975 is a series of concise and well researched case studies focusing on selected time segments in the corporate design histories of the world's greatest airlines. It provides unique insight into the design and advertising methods of an era when airlines were considered the most glamorous business sector and quality was the main criterion for selecting a flight. The airlines' visual identities were forged by some of the best creative minds of the time: designers like Ivan Chermayeff, Otl Aicher, Massimo Vignelli or Academy Award winner Saul Bass, as well as advertising luminaries like Mary Wells Lawrence. The book illustrates the shift from traditional methods of corporate design and advertisement to comprehensive modern identity programs that were generally introduced in the 1960's and early 1970's.

Pan Am: History, Design & Identity is a captivating story of an airline company that refused to consider anything impossible and single-handedly revolutionized air travel despite innumerable technical, political and organizational obstacles. From modest beginnings in the late 1920 s, Pan am developed into the world s best known airline company and served as an ambassador of American values and leadership. No other company has had a comparable influence on the airline industry, continually finding solutions for problems considered insolvable by others. Pan Am s rapid rise was accompanied by highly effective publicity campaigns which featured some of the best design and advertising in the industry. This book takes the reader on a journey into the elite world of early air travel and into the jet age when a plane ticket became affordable for the general public and mass tourism took off. The blue globe symbol, developed in the mid 1950 s, gained fame around the world. An icon and legend, it has remained in our collective visual memory down to the present day. The author explores the astonishing complexity of the company and its founder, Juan Trippe. A less known fact is that Pan Am for more than a decade built and operated the largest airline in China. Moreover, it founded Intercontinental Hotels, which today has become the world s largest hotel group. As a preeminent pioneer of global hotel operations, the company boasted an intricate and highly remarkable architectural and graphic design concept. Numerous images in this book have never been published. Great care was taken not only in developing a spell-binding visual storyline to complement the text, but also in reproducing and digitally restoring all images as accurately as possible. The book is a tribute to one of the most important companies of the 20th century and to its visionary founder. In the Premium Edition, additional care was devoted to reproduce all images true to the originals: in many instances specials Pantone colors, including gold and silver, were used to go beyond the already extremely high quality criteria of the books Standard Edition."

German designer and educator, Otl Aicher, was a pioneer of twentieth century graphic design, renowned for creating visual identities for numerous corporations (including Lufthansa, FSB, and ERCO) and his work on symbol systems. Aicher, inspired by his design system for the Munich Olympics in 1972, worked for over twenty years to create a completely visual language and is often referred to as the “father of modern pictograms.” Born after World War I and raised during the takeover of the Nazi party in Germany, Aicher often used design as a method of political resistance and tool of social equality. He is known as much for his design philosophies as his completed work. He educated a generation future designers at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) in Ulm, Germany, the school he helped found in the 1950s and 60s. Late in life, Aicher collaborated repeatedly with British architect Norman Foster on designs for public buildings, integrating his interest in design with public planning. Aicher died in a car crash in 1991.

"In Popular Culture in the Age of White Flight, Eric Avila offers a unique argument about the restructuring of urban space in the two decades following World War II and the role played by new suburban spaces in dramatically transforming the political culture of the United States. Avila's work helps us see how and why the postwar suburb produced the political culture of 'balanced budget conservatism' that is now the dominant force in politics, how the eclipse of the New Deal since the 1970s represents not only a change of views but also an alteration of spaces."—George Lipsitz, author of The Possessive Investment in Whiteness
