Soviet Space Graphics: Cosmic Visions From the USSR

$40

Made in collaboration with the Moscow Design Museum, Alexandra Sankova’s Soviet Space Graphics: Cosmic Visions From the USSR (out 1 April on Phaidon) chronicles the Cold War-era graphics that accompanied ambitious plans for outer space exploration—most notably the race to the moon. While some images were pulled from popular-science magazines, others take creative liberty in depicting extraterrestrial visits, life found outside of our solar system, and the lofty infrastructure we’d need to inhabit Mars. At 267 pages, this book services both the design-minded and the space-obsessed.
