Man-Made Moons (1960)

Just a simple one today. I like the stark design that Marie Neurath puts into her space books. With just a few colors the diagrams stand out almost like icons. You could almost image international spaceport signs using these images.
Neurath, Marie. Man-made Moons. New York : Lothrop, Lee and Shepard / London : Parrish. (36 p.) 22 cm.

The book discusses satellites, rocket fuels, orbits, and animals in satellites. Part of the "How and Why" series (US) and "Colour Book" series (UK). See also the 1961 reprint.
