This is an illustrated zine about the animals that were sent into space between 1948 and 1969 to study the effects and viability of spaceflight before it was attempted by humans.

Here's what's inside:
• 12 featured animals, each one with an astronaut-style portrait and short biography (the list includes: Félicette the cat, Ham the chimp, Marfusha the rabbit, Laika the dog, and more...)
• A brief historical introduction
• A timeline of spaceflight achievements
• A page of real photos of the animals featured

The zine is 28 pages total, 4.5"x6". Please note that the current edition of the zine no longer has a hand-stitched binding (the photos show an earlier edition).
