Dreams of Space

Dreams of Space. A blog featuring art from non-fiction children's space flight books 1945-1975. Lots of great graphics, from the realistic to the now fanciful. I must also point out the wonderful Czech pop-up book and A Trip to Outer Space With Santa.

RE the Czech pop-up book, my (Czech) wife claims text is in Russian, though blog quotes Prague (presumably printed there)? Any ideas if originally Czech or Russian?

My favorite is about a poster featuring various spaceships. I became so obsessed with it that I tracked down the originals of each of the spaceships.
