Today I received my copy of Ron Miller’s new book, Spaceships! And I provided quite a few images for it.
And here’s my review of it, (OK, so I can’t be 100% objective, but what the heck!)
The territory it covers is similar to his previous book, “The Dream Machines”, but it is very differently structured. Whereas that was almost entirely black and white, this one is stuffed full of colour illustrations, on pretty much every page. And they cover quite literally everything from toys to serious starship designs. Also the previous book was very strictly organised by date, and “Spaceships” is organised around themes, such as rocket planes, lifting bodies, and single stage to orbit, as shown below.
And here are small versions of some of the images I did that appear in the book.
