For his 88th birthday, Chesley Bonestell created a card ( 27 x 37.5 cm, b/w), for a space exploration themed poem by Adrienne Rich called "The Explorers," which had been published in a 1953 issue of The New Yorker magazine. He illustrated it with 8 small space-themed illustrations, inserting the poem itself (minus the title...) in the center and had 100 copies printed, which he then sent to various friends, colleagues, family members and neighbors. Chesley gave this copy to my husband 40 years ago. In pristine condition. A very rare Bonestell item for the serious collector.
