PAN gl'AM the new Tarek Chemaly on 7UPstairs Publishing
When I managed to put my hand on an old atlas, a study book that was used in the Netherlands many decades ago, I immediately felt the compulsive need to do a book based on it. Originally I had thought of a politically undertoned project, but little by little the glamour swept it. So enjoy this graphic/anthropologic exploration of the world of travel, pin ups, and atlas maps in the time before flying became the nightmare it has become today. Many thanks for Mr. and Mrs. Bos without whom this project would never have seen the light.
