Pan Am: History, Design & Identity is a captivating story of an airline company that refused to consider anything impossible and single-handedly revolutionized air travel despite innumerable technical, political and organizational obstacles. From modest beginnings in the late 1920 s, Pan am developed into the world s best known airline company and served as an ambassador of American values and leadership. No other company has had a comparable influence on the airline industry, continually finding solutions for problems considered insolvable by others. Pan Am s rapid rise was accompanied by highly effective publicity campaigns which featured some of the best design and advertising in the industry. This book takes the reader on a journey into the elite world of early air travel and into the jet age when a plane ticket became affordable for the general public and mass tourism took off. The blue globe symbol, developed in the mid 1950 s, gained fame around the world. An icon and legend, it has remained in our collective visual memory down to the present day. Numerous images in this book have never been published. Great care was taken not only in developing a spell-binding visual storyline to complement the text, but also in reproducing and digitally restoring all images as accurately as possible. The book is a tribute to one of the most important companies of the 20th century and to its visionary founder.rican Airways"

The Aesthetics of Nostalgia TV explores the aesthetic politics of nostalgia for 1950s and 60s America on contemporary television. Specifically, it looks at how nostalgic TV production design shapes and is shaped by larger historical discourses on gender and technological change, and America's perceived decline as a global power. Alex Bevan argues that the aesthetics of nostalgic TV tell stories of their own about historical decline and progress, and the place of the baby boomer television suburb in American national memory. She contests theories on nostalgia that see it as stagnating, regressive, or a reversion to outdated gender and racial politics, and the technophobic longing for a bygone era; and, instead, argues nostalgia is an important form of historical memory and vehicle for negotiating periods of historical transition. The book addresses how and why the shows construct the boomer era as a placeholder for gender, racial, technological, and declensionist discourses of the present. The book uses Mad Men (AMC, 2007-2015), Ugly Betty (ABC, 2006-2010), Desperate Housewives (ABC, 2004-2012), and film remakes of 1950s and 60s family sitcoms as primary case studies.
