As We Were Flying… (To Space From Russia in 1961)

1961AsWeWereFlying01

It is a 1963 reprint of a 1961 book, 32 pages of imaginative photographs.

The Russian flavor is evident all through these books. What is even more interesting to me is how the photographer chose to reproduce certain “iconic” space flight images from earlier books.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
