The Flying Fortress

I’ve stumbled across a great Flickr set showing a children’s book from 1945 about two brothers who were born in a sort of society centered around aviation. The text is in French, but the illustrations are the real draw, here. Quick warning: the depiction of some natives on one of the pages is not what I would call “culturally sensitive,” so don’t let the grass skirts, totem, and spears catch you unawares.

    even though the blankets aren’t really folded in it, just thrown. There’s two kinds
    of poster bed that’s widely available.

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that
    service? Kudos!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    When you are done with your brochure, remember to pass it around to friends, family and coworkers.

    This dietary supplement enriched in humic compounds act as a natural rejuvenator, adaptogen and restorative.
    However, one must keep in mind that these herbs will only show their effects in
    the truest form when the person stops masturbating during the
    treatment. It is observed that a man who is
    in addiction of liquor or any other form of alcohol and
    one who smokes is more prone to suffer from male sexual problems including erectile
    dysfunction, premature ejaculation and loss of libido.
