A Cultural History
Very nice! I like all the little details like the cable attached to the handgun and the spooling bits on the aerial and left shoulder.Never heard of Dangerous Visions 1; might have to keep an eye out for it. I like shorts.
Picture also used in the sci-fi book Star Quest from 1979.Picture captioned as - "The legendary Commander Mor Mikiss, one of the most experienced and respected operational officers in the Security Service was the natural choice as leader of the unique team."see: http://ski-ffy.blogspot.com/2012/03/star-quest-incredible-voyage-into.html
Great pictures like this tend to do the rounds. Where possible I try to date them to as early as possible because it gives us a better idea of how design/culture changes over the years.If ever anyone can date a picture earlier than I have then let me know and I'll update the blog accordingly.Thanks for the comments fgf and the link to the blog. That is an amazing blog over at ski-ffy
