Airways to Peace: An Exhibition of Geography for the Future: The Bulletin of The Museum of Modern Art, 1 Volume XI, August 1943
by Wilkie, Wendell L.
New York: MoMA, 1943. Softcover. VG- with only light shelf wear.. White stapled wraps with bw illus. and black lettering. 24 pp. with bw images throughout. Wilkie's title article features How Man has Drawn His World, How Much Does Mercator Distort? Most Ancient and Modern Globes, Outside-In Globe, The Progress of Flight, War Over the World, Global Strategy, Transition to Peace, and A Note on the Exhibition. With numerous images of flight and globes and press comments on the exhibition. The exhibition, designed by Herbert Bayer, offered a revealing glimpse into the mindset of a nation enmeshed in an international conflict of unimaginable proportions while simultaneously attempting to make sense of a nascent globalism and rapidly advancing technological innovations. Airways to Peace made the case that the invention and widespread use of the airplane had had an immeasurable effect on all aspects of life and speculated that it would play a critical role in impending post-war international relations. A very nice, very scarce copy.
