Saturn V 10/09/17

 

The Saturn V rocket: the flaming chariot that carried humanity to the moon. I like space things. It’s a cliche at this point.

An interesting side note on this one: it’s not lost on me that this design mirrors the style of the Soviet Futuristists (it’s very easy to imagine the ‘USA’ swapped out for a ‘CCCP’). I don’t admire much about the Soviet Union, but Soviet artists and architects created a lot of interesting, beautiful work. Soviet illustrators pioneered the bold, chunky look that is a staple of modern design.

Also, I happen to love red. I won’t let a fallen authoritarian regime dissuade me from reveling in it.
