I had to look up "See The Wind Blow" by F.N.M. Brown
to see if it's available. Not surprisingly Amazon was the first link on the google results page but when I went there all it said was that "See The Wind Blow" is out of print but you can get this other book for $309.95
That's $1.13 per page! Ridiculous! I got the hardcover edition of "Album of Fluid Motion" by Milton Van Dyke
for $0.29 per page. Of course these days there are several free flow visualization galleries on the internet such as eFluids.com
. And of course you can watch everything from 1940s NACA wind tunnel tests the guys doing tuft tests on their model airplanes.
