Star Travelers (1962)



Another lovely little book about Belka and Strelka. I like the colors chosen and the design. Since this is a "used" children's book please excuse the photoshopped removal of crayon :)

Yakovlev, Yu. Star Travelers. Moscow: Detskiy Mir. 17 cm. (48 p.) 1962.











 This may be my favorite illustration from the book. Dogs in Space!


Welcome to the new space age! (Steering wheel not included)
