Exploring the Universe (1956)


We continue our exploration of our "neighborhood" with Exploring the Universe. The illustrations are once again amazing. The book are 8" x 14" so the impact of these paintings in person is hard to recreate.

Gallant, Roy A. Illustrated by Hess, Lowell. Exploring the Universe. Garden City, NY: Garden City Books. (62 p.) 1956.
