Earth and Sky (1961)


An astronomy book from 1961 in Ukrainian. The highlights of this book are its color illustrations of the planets, along with a few spaceflight illustrations.

Earth and Sky. (22 cm) 192 p. 1961.

The black and white drawings in this book are very beautiful. 

These illustrations of the Moon as also beautifully detailed.

I missed seeing umbrellas as part of most mission plans, but they look like fun for protection and balance.

These last 3 color illustrations I like very much also for their evocative feeling. The solar flare is almost impressionistic in its violence.
