Fast, Mighty, and Obedient (1960)


So another book about transport with just a little space content. However I really like the artist style in this one and so I have a few other illustrations from the book, even though not space related. It seems fascinating to be how the release of Russian children's books with a space elements reflects the same era in America. If it had a rocket on it (on in it) it would sell.

A really nice space painting

A book about vehicles with just a little space content. This is more for completeness since the style is OK but nothing special. Sorry for the short post.

I have acquired even more Russian children's books with space flight covers and illustrations. These are mostly not about space flight but have some interesting illustrations.

The continuing dreams of space......
