Scientifiction: Planet of Futuristic Art Discovered

Posted on Apr 24, 2009


I’ve been searching the universe for out  of this world visual inspiration, and I’ve found a solid gold planet’s worth.  Italian Fabio Femino’s web archive is f’ing full of futurism.  From pulp novels to magazine cover’s to official space agency illustrations, he’s got it all–page after page after f’ing page.

It’s where fact meets theory meets art:

Only among lustrous tomes like this 1926 Amazing Stories will you find the likes of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and Edgar Allen Poe all sharing a cover with ice skating space monkeys of Titan:

But of course, I’m mostly interested in building rockets:

On that note, your astro dollar donations to the Raygun Gothic Rocket are now tax deductible (much thanks to The Crucible for agreeing to be our fiscal sponsor).  So C’mon!  Help an earthling catch a rocket home!

Cuz even this stuff costs money:
