The Airstream is an eye-catching vintage classic. First appearing on American highways in the early 1930s, these sleek aluminum icons were compact, cozy spaces that could be hitched to the family car and taken out on the open road - and nearly a century later their timeless design has lost none of its appeal, with the Airstream enjoying renewed popularity among celebrities, event planners and young travelers who appreciate its air of nostalgia and distinctively American blend of functionalism and beauty. Born in the California backyard of inventor Wally Byam and partly inspired by the work of Hawley Bowlus, the famed chief builder of The Spirit of St. Louis, the Airstream's modernist aesthetic has remained relatively unchanged in eight decades, and its industrial durability has earned a reputation without equal, with more than 65% of all Airstreams still on the road today. The book features the complete history of the Airstream, tips, cool facts, quotes and fabulous photographs-a fitting tribute to a true American legend.
