The Wonderful World of the Air (1958)

To celebrate my 100th post here is some freaky space art! Some artists in these books took the chance to create surrealistic masterpieces to inspire the children. This one uses a very different feel from most art. Instead of optimistic it seems almost paranoid and constricted.

  1. Congratulations on your 100th post! Guess I have a little catching up to do.

    It looks as if the author may have exceeded his "air" mandate somewhat. Not that I mind.
