Dreams of Space: A Collection


Sometimes a collection just works! And often, a blog is a really good way of showcasing a collection to the world. In the case of Dreams of Space it's a dangerously time-consuming combination of both. It's the subtitle of the blog that gives form and boundaries to the collection, "Non-fiction children's books about space flight from 1945 to 1975" and as soon as you read that and begin travelling back through the luscious images on the blog, you begin to realise the sheer 'rightness' of this collection. It also has scope - and then some. This is a collection which has been the focus of this blog since 2009 and seems to show no signs of running out of steam. Period graphics, childhood, neatly bounded parameters... what more could one ask for?
