and the Blockhouse one & all I've seen, so far.
But a special mention has to go to 'First Lite' for the symbolism.
I used to have this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Space-Art-Starlo...96227568&sr=1-1
Got it from mail-order when I was 17 and sold it in my early 20's for 50 pence
, but I came across it in a library last year, it has a few excellent full page reproductions of the NASA fine arts paintings, there's a great one by Norman Rockwell with astronauts being suited-up prior to a launch.
Back when I used to own the book I was more interested in the fantasy illustrations of space travel, and I found the NASA fine arts ones rather dull, in fact I found anything to do with NASA extremely disappointing as a child, well, it hardly compared to Gerry Anderson or Star Trek!
But today I have a reversal of that attitude, I'd so love to have a book of all of the NASA works, but if it ever existed it'd likely be on evil-bay at an out of this world price
