Childhood Dreams of Rocket Ships

Vintage 1965 Air Force "Age of Aerospace" Dust Jacket-Poster

 

When I was a kid, the biggest super heroes, in the real world, were astronauts. To a kid in the 1970s, SPACE was in! Pop culture had Star Trek, Star Wars and my favorite building blocks were my Space Legos. When my parents took me to Disney, it was NASA I most clearly recall. I even remember lifting weights and running, in order to be just like the men who walked on the moon.

Most of those childhood career dreams quickly changed the first time I endured turbulence on an airplane. Never the less, the coolness and positivity of the Space Program endures. When I found genuine Air Force ROTC space program promotional book covers, straight out of the US Government Printing Office of 1965, I couldn’t pass them up. This was a pre-NASA time, but the space program was in full swing. The “front cover” section features an awesome painting of an astronaut floating in space, outside his rocket. It clearly beckons Bowie to sing as Major Tom. The “back cover” side features “High Altitude Achievements” for the X-15 Aerospacecraft, balloons and satellites, promoting the “Age of Aerospace”.

My vintage “Age of Aerospace” Air Force Promo will be getting framed this evening. I feel like a kid again. I can’t wait to hang it in the warehouse gym. Was there ever a more man-cave concept than an astronaut and his rocket ship?

I’ve only got half a dozen, and I’m keeping one for myself. You will kick yourself if you miss out on this one.

SIZE: 14 1/8" x 22 7/8"

These are ORIGINALS, not reproductions.

This outstanding vintage piece is shippped rolled in a tube. It's a little more expensive, but better for safety and framing purposes.

Full Color - Paper Weights NOT included.
