Spacecraft 2000-2100 AD Videos Bring Classic ‘70s Sci-Fi Art To Life

From the time I first learned to read, all the way through to my eventually moving out for college, my imagination was sparked and shaped by my dad’s shelves of old science fiction books. I burned through paperbacks with names like Robert Heinlein and Andre Norton and Isaac Asimov on their covers. But some of the most distinct memories I have are of poring over a book called Spacecraft 2000-2100 AD, marveling at the gorgeous spaceship art and dreaming that someday I might see their like spreading out through the solar system. (I may be more cynical these days, but I still cling to those dreams.) So when I ran across a pair of CGI short films based on the book, I was instantly transported back to being eight years old again.

I Want This Toy Spaceship Poster For My Wall ASAP

One thing I love about the Internet (not to mention my job) is that it provides a quick and relatively easy pathway for fans around the world to harness their passion into creativity, make cool stuff, and then share that cool stuff with the rest of us. Sure, not everything offered up is amazing — some of it is peculiar, and some is downright awful — but it still means that every day spent poking around the corners of the interwebs (or surfing GFR, if we may be so bold) is another chance to run across something amazing. Case in point: this poster image, which takes the incredibly simple concept of photographing old science fiction spaceship toys, and results in something that I would happily pay to slap up on my office wall.
