The Art of Space: The History of Space Art, from the Earliest Visions to the Graphics of the Modern Era
by Ron Miller
The Art of Space is the most comprehensive celebration of space art ever to be published, profiling the development of space-based art in a variety of media.

In The Art of Space, award-winning artist and best-selling author Ron Miller presents over 350 high-quality and often photorealistic images that chart how artists throughout history, working with the knowledge and research available during their time, have endeavored to construct realistic images of visions throughout the universe. Beginning with depictions of space ships, unmanned probes, and space stations, Miller moves through collections that also illustrate the planets, moons, galaxies, and stars; cities, colonies, and space habitats; and possible alien life.

The artwork presented here has been created in a variety of media, from the woodcuts and oil paintings of the Victorian and Edwardian eras to the digitally enhanced work of contemporary artists. Each chapter also includes two special features: one profile an artist or group of artists of particular influence and one sidebar discussion of general cultural topics, such as the use of space art for propaganda purposes during the Cold War or the impact of the digital revolution on the resources available to artists.

A fascinating study on the intersection of science and the artistic imagination, The Art of Space shows how astronomy and space travel have been reflected in popular art and public perception over the past two centuries.

This great book arrived today. There is lots of images, some legendary well known ones, but most new to me. Only thing I hoped to see more are sculptures and latest works.
