Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? The food is good but there’s no atmosphere… 

In honor of today’s full moon on Friday the 13th, we’ve raided our book collection and client portfolio to gather up some of our favorite space-themed pop-ups…


“Tip + Top on the Moon” by Vojtech Kubasta, 1965

Back in 1965, when landing on the moon was still just a distant dream, Czechoslovakian artist, architect and book designer Vojtech Kubasta was already taking people there. His works were the subject of an exhibition at the Grolier Club in New York this past spring.


Evolution
by Raymond Hawkey, 1987

You can’t timeline human history without concluding in space. Breaking the bonds of earth still remains one of mankind’s greatest achievements. The classic book details how we got there and what may be to come.


Sonoma State University / NASA SlideShow, 2008

Do you know what a Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope is? We didn’t, but this SlideShow we created for SSU / NASA certainly peaked our interest. These interactive cards were commissioned to commemorate the launch of the telescope at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in 2008.


The Space Shuttle Action Book by Patrick Moore, 1983

The shuttle program may have come to an end, but there’s no denying it was one of our most progressive periods in space exploration. This book features some of the most detailed Space Shuttle pop-ups that any enthusiast could ask for.


Star Trek: Giant in The Universe
, 1977

No space collection is complete without an icon of science fiction history. Sorry Star Wars fans, but we’ve chosen to highlight the 1977 Star Trek book Giant in The Universe. It’s a great example of mystical pop-ups combined with space and imagination.
