Smoke Wade Art 8/32-1/34
By Frederick Blakeslee
While all of the Age of Aces aviation titles feature the original artwork for each story, it has been modified to better fit our book designs. In general, the original artwork flowed around the opening of the adventure, but in our volumes it’s expanded to fill an entire page or spread to serve as a “cover” to the story. Also, to unify the book we run the story’s title in our own font, stripping out the lettering done by the artist. Here on the web though we can offer a “dvd extra” of sorts — the full, unmodified artwork as it originally appeared in the pulp.
All art by Frederick Blakeslee except Battle Aces 8/32, “Six Gun Eagle,” by John Fleming Gould.
