A Cultural History
That is an impressive piece of art! That suit is massive! Looks more like some sort exo-power suit than a more tradition "tailored" spacesuit. I love sci-fi cover art that makes you wonder and desire a print for the writing office. Thanks for bring this art to my attention. Have to post on my blog as well! Cheers, mate!
Yes it reminds me of a couple of the early moon suit designs,like the grummanhttp://7rea.com/d/1386594167851.jpgYou could even buy a toy of it for Major Matt Murphyhttp://7rea.com/d/1386594167922.jpgOr this one http://7rea.com/d/1386594307421.jpg
Covered the first couple way back in the early days. Should probably seek out a few more of the more mad ideas that didn't get off the ground (pun intended)
