The recent topic concerning military artwork in the ephemera and photo section made me think of a book I used to have titled, 'What's New in the Air Corps'. I didn't think that these would fit into that thread too well, so decided to start a new thread here in the aviation forum...

All artwork by James Gary

Here's the drawing from the inside of the front and rear covers. It was stitched together from two separate scans...

You're right -- the artwork is great. I love the B-17's diving out of the searchlight crossed sky.

PS. That book comes with a dust jacket, looks about the same as the cover though.

Today nobody is able to draw in such a manner. I love the graphics of 1930s and 1940s. Thanks for this topic.

And a great drawing of my beloved Brewster. Today I heard that the only existing Brewster Buffalo has been shipped to Finland for a 3 1/2 year visit. It will be exposed in the finnish air force museum. The news were released today 6 of march since itīs the 90th birthday of the finnish air force. Great way to celebrate it!

Isn't that bomber shown in a view from overhead the one Boeing? B19.
