Title : Dreams of space

Description :
'Dreams of space' is a large free online 'image bank' of illustrations and paintings. The images illustrate how future and actual space travel was imagined, with most of the material being book illustrations that date from 1883 until 1974, 1974 being the year when there was little possibility of future manned moon landings continuing. The bulk of the collection is focussed on illustrations taken from children's books. The collection also covers some non-English European books on the subject. Most images are of small to medium size. There is a short directory of artists and illustrators, and a basic listing of authors and editors. The website republishes a short section from the 1978 book Space Art, titled 'The Archeology of Space Art'. The website appears to be a personal website created by John Sisson of the Science Library at the University of California at Irvine.
