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

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.
