In this follow-up to How Cities Work, explore the earliest airports through to today’s giant transport hubs and what airports could look like in the future. Packed with amazing facts and illustrations from James Gulliver Hancock, creator of the All The Buildings* in Sydney and illustrator of The Travel Bugit’ll surprise and delight readers young and old, ensuring they never look at air travel in the same way again.
