Erbauliche Book Comparison

On the 21st of November 1783, the first manned hot air balloon was launched in Paris - engineered by brothers Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier and manned by their close friends. Two years later would come the celebrated journey of balloonists Jean Pierre Blanchard and John Jefferies over the English Channel, thus propelling and cementing the romanticism of hot air balloons that has lingered in our collective consciousness ever since. In this vivid photojournal, glimpse the silhouettes of these great balloons against awe-inspiring backdrops, floating across the expansive sky.
