Rockets and Jets (1952)

This is another early children's book that has a unique illustration style. I don't have a copy with a dust jacket so the title page with have to do.

Neurath, Marie. Rockets and Jets. New York: Lothrop, Lee and Shepard. (36 p.) 23 cm. Cloth, DJ.

Intended as a basic science book the illustrations make it an exercise in what can be done with just a few colors. With the 40th anniversey of the Moon landing coming up it is neat to see imagination in action.
