David Hardy's first published work, a Moonbase, was published in 1952 when he was just 16.
Between 1954 and 1956, while in the RAF, he produced a number of paintings for a new book with Patrick Moore to be called Challenge of the Stars (not published at the time, but in a different form in 1972/78). Many of those early works appear here. They are not for sale, but prints are!
Also included, at the end, are some of his Retro Rocket series, in which he digitally creates a 50s-type scene but adds the details by hand. When ordering these, please add £15 to the price of a basic print (if in doubt, e-mail.)
