Visions of Spaceflight: Images from the Ordway Collection

Frederick I. Ordway, III, Author, Arthur Charles Clarke, Foreword by, Arthur Charles Clarke, Author Four Walls Eight Windows $50 (176p) ISBN 978-1-56858-181-1
Writer Frederick I. Ordway III worked with Werner von Braun in the early days of NASA; he also spent decades collecting pictures, paintings and diagrams of space voyages, real or imagined. With hundreds of big images in glossy color, Visions of Spaceflight: Images from the Ordway Collection makes available Ordway's hoard. Etchings of 18th-century trips to the moon, with great vultures and giant balloons, dominate one section; another includes a cover from the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (1934). Collectors may love the sometimes garish rockets and grinning spacemen from the 1950s periodicals Colliers and This Week. Arthur C. Clarke provides a one-page foreword. (Oct.)
