Visions of Space: Artists Journey Through the Cosmos. Hardback published by Dragon's World 1989 First Edition

The spaces beyond planet Earth have long held a fascination for astronomers & writers. Space Art covers a multitude - from moon craters to Martian Colonies, from solar eclipses to space shuttles. The first examples, which appeared in the 19th century, were largely based on conjecture & led early space artists into some amusing errors, but also produced some surprisingly accurate depictions. Such speculation is still the lifeblood of space art, but today artists have the added advantage of images from radio telescopes & space probes to assist them.

In this lavishly illustrated book, David A Hardy, an exponent of, & acknowledged expert on space art, traces the history of the genre, examines its development in conjunction with new technology, presents the work of over 60 celebrated artists & give fascinating background information to their individual development & techniques.

An immaculate book.
