Very little is known about the artist and we have been unable to identify the book in which these drawings were illustrated. The incredible works of John W. Wood live on within many of the publications he illustrated, most of which date from the 1960s and 70s. Some of the titles include; Inside Underground Railways. Published by Ian Allan, 1964: Civil Airliners Since 1946: The Pocket Encyclopaedia of World Aircraft in Colour. Blandford Press, London UK, 1967: Racing cars and record breakers, 1898-1921. Published by New York: Macmillan, 1971. Passenger cars, 1913-23. Published by New York: Macmillan, 1972.
