It’s with great pleasure to announce that Direction of Travel Volume 4 is now available. This volume is a deep dive into the maps created by Air India and Japan Airlines. The tradition of applying artistry into mapping the airways wasn’t only reserved to the western hemisphere, but was also practiced with great gusto and finesse in Asia.
This volume contains numerous maps by both airlines. Also included are a short story about a man flying from Tokyo to London onboard a Japan Airlines 747 set in the late 1970s and the first instalment of a new series called Airport Portraits. The first one looks at the history of Anchorage, Alaska, which during the cold-war acted as a regular refuelling stop for fights from Europe to and from Asia.
Volume 4 will be available soon at MagCulture in London and the Monocle Shop & Café in Zürich.
