Letters from Space

Astronaut Clayton Anderson spent 152 days in space aboard the International Space Station--and while he didn't mail dozens of letters back to Earth (they would have burned up on reentry!), imagine if he did! These letters from space are full of weird science, wild facts, and outrageous true stories from life in space, complete with hysterical illustrations from Susan Batori. Backmatter includes even more interesting information on space, astronauts, and living among the stars.

Illustrator: Susan Batori

Susan Batori lives in Budapest, Hungary, with her soul mate, Robert, and her cat, Kamilla. She studied graphic design at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts Budapest. She worked as an art director at DDB Advertising Agency until she noticed that drawing hilarious characters was much more fun.
