A Look Inside Postcards from Mars
(Click on Images to Enlarge)

From the Back Cover:

"Jim Bell's POSTCARDS FROM MARS is a masterpiece. It promises the future for all of us."
-Ray Bradbury, author of more than 50 books, including The Martian Chronicles and Fahrenheit 451

"POSTCARDS FROM MARS allows all of us to set foot on another planet. This superbly produced set of photographs from the historic Spirit and Opportunity rover missions is a spine-tingling preview of the dramatic landscapes that future humans will one day explore in person. And who better as a guide to these amazing images than the man in charge of taking them? Jim Bell has put together a beautiful, inspiring, and powerful book."
-Dr. Buzz Aldrin, one of the two astronauts aboard the Apollo 11 lunar module, the first manned mission to land on the Moon

"Wish you were here? I do! These picture postcards of the Martian planetscape perfectly frame the savage beauty of that alien world. And the messages accompanying the images-Jim Bell's informed, impassioned impressions of Mars-enhance the vicarious thrill of this unique travelogue. For an armchair space traveler, here is a fantasy realized."
-Dava Sobel, author of Longitude, Galileo's Daughter, and The Planets
