Fine art prints of hot air balloons and gas balloons. Did you know the first manned flight was made in a hot air balloon?
The modern era of flight began in 1783 when the Montgolfier brothers revealed their invention, the hot-air balloon, in Annonay, France. They were wealthy paper manufacturers and had observed that hot air blown into a paper or fabric bag made the bag rise.
Our fantastic fine art prints of balloons are inspired by vintage illustrations showing some of the early flights and ideas for manned balloons.
