Reply Leyton Jay May 7, 2014 Yes these are very inspirational, they’re similar to the covers of science fiction magazines and novels published in the West at around the same time. Weird to think while the US was dreaming about going to space one day, the Soviets saw themselves there already. Good to see lots of references to peace, despite the global tensions of the time.
