Romain Hugault is a designer and aviation enthusiast, well-known in France for his graphic novels and illustrations. He has produced a range of books in the last decade, all of which have an aeronautical theme, some of which have a pin-up girl theme, and some of which combine the two. This book is his one of the latter, and the second of a pair of such books he has created.

This one features just over 40 illustrations (20 colour, and 20 monochrome) and very little text (all in French). Hugault's artwork is sexy and politically incorrect, but executed with tremendous skill. He understands anatomy and figure drawing very well, and has a precise and painterly style that I like. His artwork features a lot of partial nudity, so I would not recommend it to younger readers.

I am very interested portraiture and figure drawing, so I collect the work of artists in the genre. Hugault's work is technically brilliant, sharp and sassy, but has a 1940s quality about it that harks back to earlier cheesecake artists such as Vargas, Elvgren and Caniff. If you are familiar with those old war comic novels, with page after page of ink sketches that told heroic war stories, then improve the image quality a hundred times, and then colourize them, and you'll get close to what Hugault does. His drawings are somewhere between technical illustrations and graphic art, but of the highest order.

It is disappointing that several of the large illustrations are cut in half by the binding but, putting that aside, the book looks great. Hugault's original artwork sells for very high prices, and seems to disappear into private collections, so this is likely to be the only way most people will get to see his work close-up.

You'll love this book! I stumbled across Romain Hugault's artwork a couple of years ago and I absolutely love it as I've always been a sucker for aircraft and women in stockings and suspenders and this book fits the bill.

I purchased this as a fun gift to give to my father who likes planes and scantily clad women (who doesn't). It did not quite live up to expectations, which I admit may have been due to poor research on my part and too high expectations. There is not as many pictures as I would have expected (it is no longer in my possession, but I would say no more than around twenty pictures in total). And unless I was delivered the wrong version or I completely failed to notice the obvious, it is actually written in French (despite the title and blurb being in English). Although this kind of made the present more fun, as he thinks he is good at French (he is not).

The book doesn't have many pages but the full colour art is clever and very well drawn.

The focus is not just on the usual piston figters and the ladies seem to always have the measure of the chaps (who are always the the aircrew).

As noted these aren't feminist approved, e.g. a striking WAAF standing on a spitfire wing 'leaning forward' to pour a cup of tea to a pilot in the cockpit. But the ladies do have a smile and a wink.

I can see the these fitting well as pin-ups in the original ground crew workshops, at an unamed aerodrome in the distant past.

Wonderful paintings 20 Oct. 2013
By Rudnei D. da Cunha - Published on Amazon.com

This book has a number of colour and black&white (pencil) artwork showing aircraft (of various eras) and pin-ups, something that together has an appeal since the a woman's shaped was first painted on an aircraft fuselage to boost up the morale of its crew. The artists, Hugault and Negroni, are such masters in the art and both airplanes and women come to life on their work. Highly recommended to all aircraft enthusiasts.
Aviation art work does not get better than this! 25 Jan. 2015

I wish it had more pics in there, but it's awesome. Quite a few nude babes and the attention to detail paid to the war birds is amazing. I would call it a collectors item. It's not a comic book or any other type of story, just great spectacular art work. Note: The book is in French!
Other than that it is quite good if you are into planes 25 Oct. 2014

Not for young eyes. Other than that it is quite good if you are into planes, wwii or Americanas
