Chesley Bonestell was the pioneer of accurate science fiction art. With a background in architectural rendering and the film studios, he was able to bring hitherto unseen realism to imaginary view of scenes on other planets. This was long before space flight got going, and his pictures had a big influence on the pioneers of space. This beautifully produced book offer a full biography and good reproductions of hundreds of paintings, about half in colour. Apart from the famous space scenes, there are impressive examples of Bonestell's work for architects and film studios. Well worth the money.
