In honor of Sputnik 1, 50 years later (on Oct. 4th), I present to you all a nice little gem of a book I got off of ebay about a year ago: Space Alphabet (1964) by Irene Zacks. Pictures by Peter P. Plasencia.
My scanner (which sucks, by the way) couldn't really get the true colors here. It has a problem with reds and oranges. I tried to fix it in Photoshop, but nada doing.
