I've never heard of any of them. Does that jeopardize my TAP membership?

A very good read it is too!

The Telling Aircraft Tails book reminds me of a fantastic little Hamlyn book I got when I was about 10 - World Airline Insignia. No pics but lots of beautiful artwork showing colour schemes and logos, plus details of each airline, fleet, etc. Lots of little third level outfits included from South America, Africa, etc, a DC-3 and an Apache sort of thing. Loved it. Eventually it suffered from catastrophic fatigue and disintegrated. Not long ago I bought a copy from Abebooks to leaf through when a spot of nostalgia was needed - and was bemused to find I have another copy already!

The Telling Aircraft Tails book is an excellent production, interweaving the story of a range of individual aircraft with those of the UK carriers with which they served.
