More Than An Airport

30th March 2001 at 01:00
Big books on contemporary factual themes are always needed for the literacy hour. More Than An Airport is a colourful and carefully planned 32-page compilation, telling how Manchester Airport operates now, and outlining future plans. While the focus is on the processes involved in getting passengers to and from distant locations, there is discussion on environmental issues and some historical background. The subject naturally lends iself to the purposeful use of graphs, signs, symbols, maps and other ways of conveying complex information - a good example of a busy place stimulating vigorous and varied forms of communication.

More Than An Airport costs pound;12.50 (plus VAT plus pound;1.50 pamp;p) from Manchester Airport plc Education Service, co P O Box 80, Wetherby, West Yorkshire LS23 7EQ. Tel: 01937 844622541010. Website:
