Críticas:

Artists who have art featured in the book have been asked to provide their feedback on the final product. The response has been phenomenal. Here are just few quotes:

"It is a wonderful book that will appeal to audiences ranging from preschoolers to PhDs. It is beautiful object in its large coffee table format, and is great proof that print is far from dead. Ron has created a real gem here that is so content dense, that it will take years to actually absorb the stories contained in both the art and the text." - Pat Rawlings

"The Art of Space by Ron Miller is an epic stellar voyage via space art which is sure to become an iconic literary and graphic milestone for the unsung genre of space art. Miller has masterfully compiled representative images of an array of the best space artists on the planet and beautifully painted a history of the space art genre with images and words. There is nothing to compare this work of Cosmic magnitude to for it us truly a unique book that is unparalleled." - Michael C. Turner

"This is a great addition to any library but especially for those with and appreciation of the heavens and space. Keep this one on your coffee table!" - Julie Jones

"Simply stunning! One of the best books ever published on the genre of Space Art." - Simon Kregar, Jr.

"Ron Miller's Art of Space is, hands down, the most complete and elegant book I've ever read on the history, beauty and inspiration of space art in all its facets." - Michael W. Carroll

"The Art of Space is a wonderful coffee table book encompassing beautiful pictures and text to give the reader an idea of how space and technology have evolved throughout history. I had a wonderful afternoon sitting with my son (7) looking at all the pictures and, with little prompt, hearing his own interpretation to what they depict. For art lovers, space lovers and science fiction lovers, this book will not disappoint" - "ManOfLABook.com"

"It would be a fantastic gift for anyone you know interested in space art or the history of visions of space travel, or for amateur astronomers." - "GeekDad.com"

..".this is a phenomenal book to browse. The sections all provide incredible glimpses of the history of space art, with thematic sections on planets and moons, stars and galaxies, spaceships and space stations, space colonies and cities, and aliens. This is a bit of a bible for the space art genre. If you're interested in this subject, it's a book that you're simply going to have to have." - "Astronomy.com"

"An Astounding History of Scientific Space Art from the Past 200 Years.... a gorgeous history of scientific illustrations, full of retro rockets and stunning planetscapes. It's also a glimpse back at the cutting-edge astronomy of yesteryear." - "i09.com"

"In his new book, The Art of Space, author Ron Miller explores both how we developed the technology necessary for space travel and how that technology has steadily migrated from science fiction to science fact." "- Gizmodo"

"The Art of Space is a beautiful publication and printing directly on the cover, rather than on a dust jacket, adds an element of elegance to this coffee table-style book. It is filled with paintingsand images of space-themed art and visions of galaxies and planets imagined... this is the book's strength--a collection of truly amazing art. The snippets accompanying each piece of art with fascinating stories, random facts, or insights is definitely a highlight." - "Quest: The History of Spaceflight"

"A former art director at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the award-winning artist is the author of 50-plus books, including what's considered the most comprehensive volume on astronomical art, The Art of Space." - "QUARTZ"

"You have to love a collection of space art. Or at least I certainly do. And this one put together by Ron Miller (no mean artist himself) is one of the better ones I've run across. This coffee table-sized book arrived for review probably a month or so ago and I've been going through it every day since, enjoying the wide variety of the various artists' visions. It's lovely stuff, and considering the size and fine production values, a real bargain as well." -" Fantasy & Science Fiction"

"Hold onto your hats. It's going to be a wild ride. Ron Miller is an illustrator specializing in science, astronomy, science fiction and fantasy and the author, co-author or editor of more than 50 books. He has designed postage stamps and worked on motion pictures as a production designer and special effects artist. His most recent book is The Art of Space: The History of Space Art, from the Earliest Visions to the Graphics of the Modern Era (Zenith Press, 2014)." - "LIFE Magazine"

Reseña del editor:

"The Art of Space" is the most comprehensive celebration of space art ever to be published, profiling the development of space-based art in a variety of media. In "The Art of Space," award-winning artist and best-selling author Ron Miller presents over 350 high-quality and often photorealistic images that chart how artists throughout history, working with the knowledge and research available during their time, have endeavored to construct realistic images of visions throughout the universe. Beginning with depictions of space ships, unmanned probes, and space stations, Miller moves through collections that also illustrate the planets, moons, galaxies, and stars; cities, colonies, and space habitats; and possible alien life. The artwork presented here has been created in a variety of media, from the woodcuts and oil paintings of the Victorian and Edwardian eras to the digitally enhanced work of contemporary artists. Each chapter also includes two special features: one profile of an artist or group of artists of particular influence and one sidebar discussion of general cultural topics, such as the use of space art for propaganda purposes during the Cold War or the impact of the digital revolution on the resources available to artists. A fascinating study on the intersection of science and the artistic imagination, "The Art of Space" shows how astronomy and space travel has been reflected in popular art and public perception over the past two centuries. With forewords from Carolyn Porco and Dan Durda, this book is the ultimate resource for space art fans.
