Hand-Drawn Pencil Space Rocket Concept Designs

Stock #47982

A set of eight pencil designs for various sections of a space rocket and lunar module from Superman and Superman II. Sent to Earth from his home planet of Krypton, Kal-el (Christopher Reeve) is raised by humans and grows to become the honest and true Clark Kent, while also taking on the identity of Superman to protect the people of Earth.

This collection comes from the estate of Oscar-nominated production designer Harry Lange. Lange was working for NASA's Future Project department when Stanley Kubrick hired him to conceive and design the technology featured in the ground-breaking 2001: A Space Odyssey, for which he received an Oscar nomination. Lange then went on to play a key role in numerous noteworthy films, including Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Moonraker.

Each page of this set is full of hand-drawn images on tracing paper; some have measurements and scales written alongside. Many of the sheets have worn edges and short crease marks across the edges, but are in otherwise very good condition. Illustrations are by Harry Lange, with the largest illustration measures 60 cm x 40 cm (23½" x 15¾").
