The Art of Chesley Bonestell
(April 2001). Edited by Ron Miller, Fred Durant with Melvin Schuetz.
Paper Tiger Books.
Long overdue, this wonderful book
is the definitive tome of Bonestell. What makes it great is the
sheer amount of paintings Bonestell did in his lifetime and not
just space art. Architectural drawings , landscapes, even experimental
oriental paintings abound the pages of this book. What makes
it really special for artists is the editors have chosen to include
a huge amount of sketches,rarely seen before this. Also, some
nice drawings and a look inside Bonestell's personal life with
photos and some anecdotes about his 98 years of life. This is
a must-get book for artists and space and SF fans and just anyone
who likes space, the way it used to be!
