Future Travelers (1970)


A Ukrainian rather than Russian children's space book. The translation is from the seller so it may also be closer to "travel in the future." It is about the vehicles we might find in the future. The design of the illustrations are really wonderful reminding me of World's Fairs, Thunderbirds, and other cool vehicles of the future.  Not as many space vehicles but jetpacks, moles, flying cars and other interesting modes of transport await.

Future Travelers. 15.5 x 22.8 cm. 120 p. 1970

The joy to me is in the design of the vehicles as well as the drawings at the beginning of each chapter.  Here are the chapters:

There are a number of black & white illustrations. Here are a few of my favorite vehicles:

  1. The art is quite reminiscent of Kevin O'Neill. Or vice versa.
