FANTASY WORLDS BEYOND: THE IRWIN ALLEN ART OF RON GROSS

​***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

LOST IN SPACE: THE INITIAL ADVENTURES​

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!

This 8" x 10" full color volume is an illustrated novelization of the early story arc that launched the series. Think of it as an expanded version of the new trading card set, but including even more detail and graphic images. It utilizes many of my past poster art pieces, plus several new images to fully round out the story. The classic "first five' episodes are the focal point of this project.

But it doesn't stop there. I have also included a special edition of the "lost" sixth episode entitled
"Refuge of the Damned" that was briefly outlined, but never developed. It explains the mysterious aliens that were seen at the end of the unaired pilot and in the summer, 1965 promo, but who never actually appeared in the series.

I have also included various "lost" scenes throughout the entire novel. These are basically sequences that were scripted but never filmed, or in some cases, filmed but eventually cut. Finally, there are comprehensive support sections that explain all of the above in more detail, and even cover selected other episodes that came after the classic "first five" (or in this case, the "first six.")

USA only. Non-USA customers can order directly on Amazon after the book goes live in late April.
