Our next Astronaut of the Month is Valentina Tereshkova. In June of 1963, this Russian cosmonaut became the first woman to go to space. For the Vostok 6 mission, she orbited the Earth 48 times and spent nearly three days on her solo mission. She was 26, and remains the youngest woman to go to space, and the only one sent on a solo mission.
Inspired by mid-century magazine illustrations, Dane designed these two color illustrations hoping to remind us of the excitement and fascination that overflowed when Astronauts were the world's newest heroes.
These limited edition prints are printed on Epson 100% cotton rag cold press watercolor paper with archival Epson Ultrachrome HD inks, so they should stay bright and beautiful for a long time.
This bright print is limited to an edition of 75 pieces, and are each hand-numbered and signed by Dane. Sized at 4x4 inches, you can frame these individually in standard 4x4 frames, mat them up to a larger square frame, or even group several together for added style.
We ship these in a bubble mailer with an extra cardboard insert for extra stability.
