Editorial Reviews

Review

"Visually delightful."―Atlas Obscura

"While the American view of the space race is well documented, this collection of more than 250 illustrations reveals another view. Beyond the search for life out there in the universe, the Soviet artwork often illuminates the equally important journey into our own minds, where anything can be possible."―Los Angeles Times Online

5.0 out of 5 stars Crammed Full of Illustrations
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 15, 2020
This is the best book of soviet-era space illustrations I have ever seen. It is crammed full of over 250 space, science and sci-fi illustrations. It also includes a 5-page introduction to the soviet space race and a very small amount of text about each picture. If you are a lover of illustration, you will love this book.
