Six Days on Luna 1

Maybe the most beautiful book from Teodor Rotrekl´s peak period is Šest dnů na Luně 1 (Six Days on Luna 1, 1963) written by a journalist Ivo Štuka (1930 - 2007). This book for older children combines a real history and possible future of the space exploration with a caleidoscopic novel set in our solar system. Almost every page contains a color illustration by Rotrekl, some of them quite exciting. Here is a scan of the original artwork used for the cover of the book including a hand-drawn title.
