This 8" x 10" full-color volume consists of 194 pages and over 200 illustrations covering three decades of artistic contributions to the world of Irwin Allen by author / artist Ron Gross. In development for more than three years, the book features many artistic works that have never been seen before!
Included are Ron's acclaimed scratch built models, with a special emphasis on his Jupiter 2 prototype creation that eventually became the basis for the production kit marketed by Polar Lights in 1998.
Also included are Ron's box art contributions to various model kits offered by Moebius Models, other licensed materials including his entire Irwin Allen Poster Art series from 2015 through 2021, and Ron's new Lost in Space trading card set produced in collaboration with Monsterwax.com.
In addition, there is a section that covers some of Ron's boyhood art from that magical era when Lost in Space was still on the air in prime time!
The book also features a tribute to Kevin Burns, and a compelling Foreword by Laen August, host of the popular "Alpha Control" podcast. It represents an absolute MUST HAVE for all fans of Lost in Space, especially those who appreciate the earlier, more dramatic episodes of the first season!
Ron Gross has a distinctive manner of dignifying this 1960's TV classic, and all of his tantalizing illustrations are reproduced in rich, full color after considerable research relating to color accuracy!
