Book Review The Art of Space by Ron Miller

My rat­ing for The Art of Space — 5

Thoughts:
The Art of Space: The History of Space Art, from the Earliest Visions to the Graphics of the Modern Era by Ron Miller is a wonderful coffee table book encompassing beautiful pictures and text to give the reader an idea of how space and technology have evolved throughout history.

It was marvelous to see how the idea of science-fiction have evolved over the decades, from winged moon creatures to worlds feel with natural wonders or space colonies. In each era, the artists have taken whatever knowledge was available at the time and expanded on it to create a vivid futuristic guess of what lies just around the corner. I had a wonderful afternoon sitting with my son (7) looking at all the pictures and, with little prompt, hearing his own interpretation to what they depict.

Two thought provoking forward essays by planetary scientists Carolyn Porco and Dan Durda start the book and set the tone for what you are about to experience. For art lovers, space lovers and science fiction lovers, this book will not disappoint.
