WHEN I WAS IN MY TWENTIES, I TRAVELED AROUND THE WORLD.  I STILL TRAVEL OFTEN AND A LOT HAS
CHANGED INCLUDING AIRLINE NAME TAG DESIGNS.  I STILL REMEMBER THE EXCITEMENT OF MY SUITCASE
BEING TAGGED AT THE COUNTER BEFORE MY FIRST TRIP.  OVER YEARS OF TRAVELING, I’VE ACCUMU-
LATED MANY TAGS AS BY HABIT, I KEEP SAMPLES OF EVERYDAY DESIGNS I LIKE.  THESE AIRLINE TAGS
HAVE BEEN RECYCLED FROM MY COLLECTION INTO THE SPECIAL EDITION VERSION OF MY BOOK.
