Description

One of man’s great dreams has always been to fly high through the air like a bird, free as a bird.

There are ancient Greek legends such of those of Daedalus and Icarus, and indeed as early as the 9th century attempts at flight are reputed to have taken place in Arabia. It wasn’t until 1783, however, that the invention of hot air ballooning by the Montgolfier brothers in France propelled man through the air for the first time.

This colourful work depicts every step of this adventurous ballooning story.
