A collection of artists' renderings of future space colony concepts from the 1970s. There's a wonderful, almost whimsical strain of thought in American futurist art: the idea that in the future we'll be ourselves, only more so. You can see it in the houses in the illustration above - houses that could have been just picked up from any suburban street and planted neatly into space. These images and others liked them survived well into the 80s, where they populated the children's science books that I read. I loved the idea that this technology was so near at hand that my future house in space would be very much like my own house.
