The 1950's was a time of wonder and the universe was the focus of many young imaginations. Hollywood adopted science fiction and the toy industry followed closely. The Japanese manufactured toy robots for the children of America and designed great boxes to hold these vintage tin toys. This illustration art comes directly from these boxes. from popular pulp magazines and from book covers.
Robots sure were clunky in the '50s! But they were kinda charming, too. There's something about these prints that's really endearing, and if you love that campy paranoia about their impending takeover of the world, feel free to snap lots of them in this collection.
