Punch-out Mobile Solar System (1959)

Another example of space art but not necessarily space ship art for children, I love the colors and painted illustrations in this very thin book (6 pgs!).

Punch-out Mobile Solar System (1959) Dell Publishing Co. Racine, WI.  No. 151

It was very ambitious. Observe that it contained not only all 9 (8) planets and their moons, but also the Sun, the constellations, asteroids, comets, ring nebula, star clusters, and a spiral galaxy! It is the universe in your own bedroom.
