Thank You Vintage Christine - From The Bottom of My Heart!!!



Vintage Christine, I was just blown away by the gift she sent me.

This ah-mazing pulp space paperback!

Perfect perfect for my space room/office!

The graphics on the cover are pure mid-century art, and the other reason why this is special, well, Christine knows. ;)

Christine, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! It brought a tear to my eye.

  1. Now that's a wicked cool paperback. I was drawing those kinds of pictures as a kid on what was supposed to be my English and Math teachers. I should have probably studied a big harder...oh well

  3. That would be English and math papers...I'd of been in a heap of trouble if I drew on the Teachers. When I was in School it was right to spank the kids. I did read a GREAT deal; it helped that my Mother was an English teacher but you wouldn't know that from my writing; sadly.

  6. Books were my solace as a kid. And the library loaned them for free!!!!!!

    Was a huge deal when I was a kid of "modest means" growing up. =)

  7. What a nice gift. I am totally guessing the guy in red getting shot was the (dun-dun-duuuh) Communist in the life of death race to the moon. Golf I remember during moon landings, lunar rover, MTV flag planting - yep. Gunfire, not so much.

  8. I loved books as a kid too. My biggest thrill was when the bookmobile came to our school. I went to a brand new elementary school, and it didn't have a library yet, so the public library sent their portable library out to the school. That was so cool!

  11. Just the fact that you have a space-themed room makes me like you a little more. What a neat book!

  12. I'm thinking that book would look good next to some Tom Swift and Hard Boys hardbacks.

  18. Hehehe! I KNEW you would love it! I also have the entire original set of Tom Corbett, Space Cadet books on display in my book cabinet--they fit in well with all my other mid-century junk. They belonged to first husband too. I got my computer back finally and will do a post later today--yesterday was too full of rain and tornado watches!

  19. There you are! Glad you have your computer back, yay!

    I do love the book, and still comb eBay auctions for other cool space additions...

    I may have to make my own Apollo model to hang from the ceiling lol...
