A book review by Joe Frasketi, Jr. of SPACE CRAFT CACHETS titled:

SPACE CRAFT COVERS:
A Monograph and Catalog
Revised and updated second edition
by Charles J. Vukotich, Jr.


  • Space Craft Covers (SCC) have always been the Cadillac of the hobby, covering the "golden age" of space exploration. The first edition of this work has now become a standard reference work on this popular series of cacheted covers, and has long been out of print. Chuck Vukotich has now delivered on the long promised second edition.
  • This is the complete reference book on Space Craft and Swanson designed cacheted covers. The second edition presents many new discoveries not in the first edition, and much new Space Craft lore.
  • The section on non-SCC Swanson covers is also greatly expanded. There are completely new sections on Space Craft collectibles and Swanson rubber stamp designs. The catalog section is expanded to include information on cancel types (hand or machine).
  • Prices have been updated to reflect the latest auctions and dealer sales.
  • The first edition was created at the very beginning of the word processing revolution, and is crude in comparison. The second edition makes full use of the PC and is much cleaner than the first. The catalog section has a better presentation style, making it very easy to use.
  • The work does not illustrate all SCC cachets, but rather those which are unusual or of major interest.The illustrations are 25% of actual size, but sufficient for identification purposes.
  • Two nice touches are the use of deluxe coil binding and a cover front reproducing an early piece of space art by Carl Swanson in full color. There are 82 pages to this catalog that should be in every collectors space reference library.

  • Price:
    • $32 (postpaid by Priority Mail in US)
    • $42 (postpaid by Priority Mail, non-US addresses)
