Aviation History Bookmarks
treat you to bits of history about famous pilots and aviation events along with suggestions for further reading—focusing on books authored by the pilots themselves.
These six, two-sided, bookmarks
(winner of a Pulitzer Prize for The Spirit of St. Louis);
—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
(The Little Prince; Night Flight; Wind, Sand and Stars);
(20 Hrs, 40 Min.: Our Flight in the Friendship; The Fun of It);
(Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13);
—All three astronauts aboard Apollo 11 (Neil Armstrong, “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins
) contributed to a book published soon after the first moonwalk ever (First on the Moon) and command module pilot Michael Collins was the sole author of two books.
—And you may never have heard of Eugene Bullard
but he was the first African-American fighter pilot, flying for France in World War I before the United States entered that war. He received France’s highest military decoration for his service. There have been a couple of books based in part on his unpublished memoirs, and one is mentioned on his bookmark (Eugene Bullard: World’s First Black Fighter Pilot).
This product provides you with two pdf files: One of the bookmarks with the images in color, and one of the bookmarks with the images in black-and-white.
Printing the bookmarks on cardstock will produce the best result. The bookmarks print three-to-a-page.
