Product Details


“… a fascinating book…”  The New York Times

… (a) big, beautiful photographic survey of 85 historic and contemporary air traffic control towers from around the world and throughout history…”  Architectural Record

“These Photos Will Change How You Look at Airport Towers.”  Atlas Obsura

“Russo, who works for the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, has recently completed a nine-year quest to capture 100 control towers in 23 countries, documenting their stark, sometimes surreal architecture in a series of powerful images.”  CNN

“Russo’s striking photographs and informative captions reveal the architectural, cultural, and technological significance of each of the featured towers. This one-of-a-kind view of airport towers will change the way you think about flight.”  Digicult

“Stark, closely cropped within their frames, and rendered in high contrast, Russo’s towers are often imposing and intimidatingly tall — yet elegant — and stand as grand industrial feats that command the landscape.”  Hyperallergic

“Devotees of art photography and aviation history alike will savor this unusual and well-researched look at these important airport sentinels.”  Foreword

“The photos are beautiful black and white prints that highlight the modern architecture and distinct design of each structure.”  Travel + Leisure
