"Deadnaut" - Art Print

Deadnaut
12.5x19" Charcoal Brown French Paper
2 colors
Screen printed by hand

This is the first of hopefully many science fiction themed posters. So you ask how is this sci-fi? The idea that Germany won the space race before the USSR or the USA.

"The Space Race can trace its origins to Nazi Germany, beginning in the 1930s and continuing during World War II when Germany researched and built operational ballistic missiles. Starting in the early 1930s, German aerospace engineers experimented with liquid-fueled rockets, with the goal that one day they would be capable of reaching high altitudes and traversing long distances."

But say that Germany got to space first but didn't return back. This is the inspiration for this print.
Thanks enjoy.
