Advice regarding AF books

I was looking for a comprehensive book about the history of AF, preferably with a good assortment of pictures emphasizing its fashion and catering. I came upon a couple of titles but unfortunately was unable to get more information about these books, so I would like to ask the bibliophiles among us for their recommendations if they are familiar with these titles:

Air France: Des Origines a Nos Jours by Gerard Maoui and Robert Esperou. ISBN 2-86274-5375.

Des Metiers Et Des Hommes: Air France, Gestes et Paroles by Nadia Simony. ISBN 274910145X.

Sauver Air France by Pascal Perry. ISBN 2-73842-4910.

As always, I am grateful for any assistance provided.

I have'nt read any of the books you mention here but I would suggest you try to get "Icare" magazine. Issue #106/107 features the history of AF from 1933 to 1983, and the issue #185-186 features the 1983-2003 bit. I own the latter, it is really great (think about it as a Wallpaper kind of magazine, not Airways mag in terms of quality, etc).

You can get the magazine's address online
http://www.revue-icare.com/

An issue of the magazine costs between 15 and 25 EUR.

If anyone can suggest any other book/magazine I would be interested as well.
