Wow, those are great! I especially like the little captions with the crew emblems — the best I could do on my collages were white print on a black background.

Nice work!

My only comment is it would be nice to have a small blurb on each page to highlight the mission and its accomplishments.

Thank you for your kind words.

I was thinking about adding more info about missions but found it tricky. It might look a bit busy after adding more text. I was thinking that printing on the back side (like on the NASA lithos) would solve this problem.

I'm going to have to disagree. They're good design elements, good balance and uncluttered. Far too often people resort to what I refer to as the "10 pounds of ideas in a 2 pound bucket."

I wonder if anyone will be interested in getting these collages for the ASF signing?

These look great! Could you think other themes like ESA astronauts or female astronauts working? Serious work images would be great. I think we have seen enough images of shampooing hair instead of science or maintenance work.

Thank you. I like them too.

Regarding the other collages, they are possible if 1) there is a serious demand, 2) there are images available for using.

Even for simple ones it does take quite a bit of time (and money) to do search, assemble, color correction, cropping, making draft copies/prints etc.

(And by the way, Julie Payette liked the collages. I have all three signed in person to me and my daughter.)

Wish I'd had your Bykovsky collage when I sent my request to him last year, Lev! Looks great!

Received my Apollo 12 collages signed by Alan Bean. I really like them.

I will be able to bring some of my collages to the Spacefest for signing. Let me know if you are interested.
