Merry Mars by Chris Trevas (2005)

A finer piece of Santa/spaceman art you will be hard pushed to find.  Fantastic work, by Chris Trevas.  And a great big happy Christmas for those that care, otherwise just enjoy the holiday

Great Adventure Stories for Boys Hamlyn story library (1977)



Two editions of the same book, both paying homage to a different, previously existing, spacesuit.

The first is clearly: Space: 1999 - Mission of the Darians (1975) with some elements of the  UFO and Moon Zero Two spacesuits

And the second is the classic: Alien (1979) Ripley's Suit

Because I'm reading a lot of old books from the 60's 70's and 80's this year I was quite happy to order myself an copy of the top one for that reason and the rather lovely cover.  I'll update artist info when it arrives, if its documented.

Parker Lewis Can't Lose (1991)

From Parker Lewis Can't Lose series 1 episode 20: Randall Without a Cause... the space helmet from Starflight One.... just sitting there being a prop for reasons never explained.
A wonderfully obscure find by blog-follower SWGhostbuster.
Many thanks
