I did a post the other day on Total War's art, which has been collected into a book, and while looking at that publisher's site I saw something that made me lose my shit, just a little. It was a book called Warbirds.

It's a book full of images done by Adam Tooby, whose job is to illustrate military aircraft doing badass things. The kind of things that were all over the posters covering my bedroom walls when I was a kid.

The book — and Adam's art in general — spans everything from the First World War to the present day.

When I'm old and grey, and have given up video game writing for model battleships and expensive Scotch, I'd hope pics like this can be all over my walls once again.
