Skyjets for Fliers of Tomorrow (1954)


So this is one of the stranger books I have found over the years. It is about a future in which people will get individual jet-powered wings to fly. It is set a little like a fantasy and a little like a dream. It has "perfect" 1950s illustrations about how the future might develop. Mostly it is a lot of fun. Back to spaceflight stuff next week.

Donaldson, Lois and Arthur K. Bilder. Illustrated by Bilder, Arthur K. Skyjets for Fliers of Tomorrow. Chicago, IL: Albert Whitman. (28 p.) 1954. 

It was all a dream....
