I should like to thank the many friends who have over the past five years or so assisted me with the collecting of photographs and information relating to the SHARKMOUTH and to variations of this marking. My thanks to all who helped; their names are listed below in alphabetical order. Probably a word about the layout of the books may not be out of place here. The layout finally chosen after much thought is partly chronological and partly by type and/or unit, the lapses being dictated by the space available and the large amount of material which had to be included.

The Aircam Aviation Series Of Books Took A Largely Pictorial Look At Classic Military Aircraft Types, With Only A Short Narrative Text Serving As Introduction. A Companion Series Of Specials Portrayed The Camouflage And Markings Worn By Various Military Air Arms And Flying Units.
After 5-6 Pages Of Concise Text Introducing The Subject, The Remainder Of Each Book Comprised B+W Photographs, 8 Pages Of Colour Profile Artwork And 3-4 Pages Of Small Plan-View Tone Drawings, Showing The Upper And Lower Surfaces Of The Aircraft Illustrated In Colour. The Original Editions Of The First Few Titles Were Printed Entirely On Glossy Paper, But Later Titles And Reprints Appeared With Matt Paper For All Except The Colour Profiles. This Resulted In Rather Poor Reproduction Of Some Of The Photographs.
Subsequent Reviewers Have Cast Doubt On The Accuracy Of Some Of The Colour Profiles, But The Range Of Aircraft Chosen Is Still Impressive And The Colour Schemes Often Unusual. The High Prominence Given To Japanese Aircraft Was Very Unusual For The Late 1960s/Early 1970s. Text written by aeroflight
