This site is designed to share information about the magazine Wonders of World Aviation.
Published by the Amalgamated Press, it appeared as 40 weekly instalments from 8th March through to 6th December1938. A vast range of subjects was covered.
The complete work was designed to be bound in two hardback volumes which are still readily available. Others chose to retain the weekly parts with their attractive colour covers. Today the weekly parts are more difficult to obtain but do appear from time to time.
As this site is developed you will be able to review information on each of the 40 issues, and explore the contents of this fascinating magazine using the various links provided. All the covers and colour plates will be viewable, along with extracts from the photogravure supplements and the full-page black and white illustrations used. Information about the editorials and the advertising used on the covers will also be incorporated.
A number of themed pages will be added which will add depth to the content, such as Makers of Air History; along with more general information, such as biographical notes about the Editor, Clarence Winchester.
