I'm proud to announce my very first book:

thanks to Voyageur Press (as part of Quarto U.S:) I had the chance to share such adventure with my friend Michael Gorn . We realized a book that mixes text and artworks in order to provide coincise but detailed information (both historical and technical) about the most important 100 spacecrafts since the start of Space Age.
The purpose of our book is to provide spacecraft reference to professional, scholars, space fans and people that simply what to learn more about the topic.
The book will be released next September while pre-order is available by now on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Spacecraft-Iconic-Rockets-Shuttles-Satellites/dp/0760354189/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1518156853&sr=8-2&keywords=giuseppe+de+chiara

Congratulations ! I've been following your work over the last decade, here, at NASAspaceflight.com, and elsewhere. Nice to see all those artworks made it into a book.

No secret projects or proposal the book deals exclusively with actual projects.
This not exclude that in future, if such book is successfull, there will be another one focused about unbuilt projects.
