A deluxe copy of Robert Taylor's Air Combat Paintings Volume V - RAF Cover.
Published in 2005 this was a fine addition to the growing series of books featuring the work of the world's leading aviation artist, Robert Taylor. A showcase for 32 images produced mainly between 2000 and 2005, this volume also contains a handful of paintings that had not at the time been seen as limited edition prints, plus a great many pencil drawings. The colour plates are supplemented with many additional plates showing detail areas of the paintings. The quality and accuracy of detail in Robert's work makes this another essential must-have volume for his collectors around the world. After a Foreword by Air Commodore Peter Brothers and an introduction by Major Charles Metcalfe there is a short biography of the artist. There then follows a section dedicated to Robert's pencil drawings, a dozen excellent examples are introduced by the artist, many others are spread amongst the rest of the book
This is a limited edition version of the book that was originally issued with the print Top Cover - however the two have become separated at some point so we just have the book. Even a standard version of Volume 5 is very hard to find, so this is a very rare opportunity to get a special copy of this book that has been signed by the artist and is presented in a high quality blue cloth slipcase.
