ABOUT THE COVER
sing several Apollo mission views of
the earth available on the Internet,
and a globe of the world, artist John
Dean oriented the planet just so
North America could be seen in its entirety, and
carefully mapped out this view on
canvas while using the color and detail
schemes available from the Apollo
photos. Placement of
the small models of
Saturn, Mars, Venus,
and a distant galaxy
add emotional impact
to this dramatic
oil painting and
make planet earth an
inviting place to the
distant viewer.
