Concorde – The Supersonic Thoroughbred

Concorde – The Supersonic Thoroughbred

by Stephen Brown

Stephen Brown is a self-taught artist who has specialised almost exclusively in aviation subjects for the last 15 years. Building on a background as a landscape and aviation photographer, his style carefully combines both these areas of interest. Stephen’s originals in oil are in much demand and have been regularly exhibited with the prestigious Guild of Aviation Artists. Demand for his originals is high with regular commissions being undertaken for commercial and private clients as well as the RAF.

The following Concorde flight deck crew have signed the Artist Proof and Remarqued copies of “Concorde – The Supersonic Thoroughbred”

Please note that the Primary Edition is not signed by Captain Les Scott.

We do hope you will find these biographies of interest. We think that by knowing a little about the men behind each signature, it will help you get the most pleasure from your limited edition print. We would ask you not to reproduce the biographies in any format without our permission.
