About this title


Signed by Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke on the free endpaper.

From Library Journal:

McCall may not be a household name, but his art is instantly recognizable as some of the most memorable icons depicting space exploration. The space station poster from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey , the space mural at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, and numerous U.S. Postal commemorative issues all bear his distinctive stamp, one that enthusiastically celebrates space achievements and projects an optimistic future in which high technology exists in harmony with nature. Despite Ray Bradbury's overwrought introduction, this collection presents McCall at his best, including 30 works not published before. As such, it updates Ben Bova's previous collection of McCall's art, Vision of the Future ( LJ 2/15/83). It will appeal to space buffs and should be a useful addition to collections that already have Bova's book and the classic space art collection Eyewitness to Space (1971. o.p.).
