A wonderful mix of art and space exploration! When I originally bought this book I thought it was a mixture of art and photography, but on closer inspection everything has been done by hand! This book charts the history of NASA through paintings taken from NASA's own collection and shows a mixture of emotion and technology (the opening picture of the book will make you chortle - an astronaut sat under an umbrella in space painting a picture of his shuttle). Is quite expensive.. but in my humble opinion is well worth it!

An exquisitely illustrated history of the space program.

Mary Kalamaras was the in-house STC editor not the author. Please correct. I wanted, when planning the publication of this book, to publish an exciting and riveting history of the space program. I wanted to illustrate it with the extraordinary art collection that NASA has been building from its inception, inviting artists from Robert Rauschenberg to Norman Rockwell to attend its launches and observe and document its work. This published work is my dream come true. Brilliantly written and finally designed by Nai Chang, and superbly printed, it is everything a gift book is supposed to be: a great story informed by extraordinary images... in this case one of the most absorbing stories of the twentieth century.
