Abandoned in Place: Preserving America's Space History

Roland Miller will join us to read from and sign his new photography book, Abandoned in Place: Preserving America's Space History.Stenciled on many of the deactivated facilities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the evocative phrase "abandoned in place" indicates the structures that have been deserted. Some structures, too solid for any known method of demolition, stand empty and unused in the wake of the early period of US space exploration. Now Roland Miller's color photographs document the NASA, Air Force, and Army facilities across the nation that once played a crucial role in the space race.Rapidly succumbing to the elements and demolition, most of the blockhouses, launch towers, tunnels, test stands, and control rooms featured in Abandoned in Place are located at secure military or NASA facilities with little or no public access. Some have been repurposed, but over half of the facilities photographed no longer exist. The haunting images collected here impart artistic insight while preserving an important period in history.Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Abandoned in Place: Preserving America's Space History from The King's English.GET YOUR COPY NOW!
