    1st printing. By Ron Miller. How have actual spaceships influenced the design of fictional ones like the Millenium Falcon and the starship Enterprise? Did a fiction series in Collier's magazine really inspire us to create real-life space stations like Mir and the ISS? How have our depictions of space travel developed as the reality of space travel changed? In his new book Spaceships: An Illustrated History of the Real and the Imagined, Ron Miller shows that when it comes to spacecraft, art actually does imitate life and, even more bizarrely, life imitates art. Miller takes readers on a visual journey through the history of the spaceship both in our collective imagination and in reality. Hardcover, 10-in. x 10-in., 256 pages, full color. Cover price $34.95.
