Ground to Major, bye-bye Tom

A Golden Book-ish illustrated version of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" is an unlikely idea, but damned if it doesn't work. First found it through Popped Culture, to give credit where credit is due. Since Bowie himself could easily be floating in a tin can for all he's made known of himself lately, I guess it's good to make use of the music he's already given us.

I liked it but I don't see it as a book for children either - just as not all animated movies are meant for children. The same goes for manga and comic books.

True enough. I guess I meant more that it was in the style of an old children's book, in order to conjure up a certain mood. If you showed it to a young child I think they'd like the colors but be freaked by the ending. Rightly, perhaps.
