The Pioneer of the Pioneers (1962)

This books celebrates the voyage of Yuri Gagarin and how he inspired the Soviet nation. It has impressions of the flight, history of Gagarin, b&w photographs, and a large number of children's drawings of space flight. I have chosen to highlight these drawings as capturing the excitement children may have felt at the idea of people going into space. 

The Pioneer of the Pioneers. Moscow : Young Guard Press. 80 p. 20 cm. 1962.
