Wonders of Space Travel (1954)

A re-run again. I mentioned this one briefly about a year ago but thought I would share some more scans with you.

These were booklets that were enclosed as extras in Lion magazine.  This 1954 one reused a lot of the Bonestell and Freeman illustrations from the Collier's magazine series.

Some were re-paintings of famous images.

A lot of very beautiful art for such a small booklet.  It even had this great color "center-fold".

I apologize for the lack of posts. there have been a lot less new items in my collection and I haven't had time to do more scans of some of the older ones.  Maybe summer will re-inspire me.  Here are a couple more pages:

Really beautiful images even if re-printed from another source.
