Rockets and Satellites (1961)

I blogged about this book in 2010 so it is time for a refresh of the post with more and better images. Franklyn Branley was one of the major writers of children's science books with more than 50 books over his career. The art design of this book is very unique and minimalistic.

Branley, Franklyn. Illustrated by Sokol, Bill. Rockets and Satellites. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell. (40 p.) 1961.

 The artist uses the whole double page spread to create a spacious feel.

 I find this one surprisingly disturbing with objects from the sky falling on the child.

 Here is another falling object💀💀💀
 This illustration shows a very short term way of capturing a satellite when it returns. These often turned out to be spy satellites returning film.
