This week I got a chance to un-pack this collection. I’ve had it for about 10 years now and it has been in boxes the whole time.
I absolutely love this cover. It is unabashedly silly. What is that boy even doing with that dog? Why lug that iron lung so far from your home-dome if the dog can’t even walk around? That thing has to weigh a ton. All joking aside, there’s something delightful about all the space covers from before 1961, when Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space. Interestingly though, the first dog in space was Laika, in 1951, so I guess they really have no excuse!
