notes: The little astronaut in this diorama book hangs suspended among the clouds over the city below. He, and the bird, are attached to flexible “stems” so that they quiver and sway when the book is moved. Frozen in his terminal fall he is left to contemplate the point to life for all eternity, or until the glue on his back breaks.
