Beyond Tomorrow: The Next 50 Years in Space (1965)


Beyond Tomorrow is an "adult" book with great paintings. If you came across it as a child in the library, the coffee table, or in the rummage store you would have been changed for life by its visions.  Obscure now, it had multiple paintings by artist Roy G. Scarfo.  It is worth hunting down as a space art book but also for the visionary (and strange) essays about a possible future in space.
