Lost in Space Design: No Place to Hide
Written by Robert Rowe and edited by Jack Hagerty. 80 page softcover book with colour and black and white photos and illustrations.
Industry insider Robert Rowe was given unprecedented access to the Fox Television archives when he started researching Lost in Space in the mid '80s. For over a decade, he continued to pore over production documents and interview the craftsmen responsible for creating the show. The result was The Jupiter 2 Repair Manual, a guide on the workings of the ship for the writers of the stillborn LiS reunion TV special. Fans of the show will be eternally grateful for Robert's efforts since those archives are no longer accessible, and most of the people responsible for the series are no longer with us.
To make this invaluable information available to the show's fans world-wide, Robert has expanded the Jupiter 2 Repair Manual into a series of Lost in Space Design books. This first one covers the creation of the original pilot episode, "No Place to Hide."

Lost in Space Jupiter 2 Technical Guide
Featuring the fantastic blueprints of Geoffrey Hardy, 3D renderings by Christopher Krieg, technical descriptions by William Wolod and edited by Jack Hagerty. 110 page softcover book with colour and black and white photos and illustrations.
Irwin Allen's outer space adventure series, Lost in Space, continues to amaze. Now 45 years after it debuted on CBS, folks are still enthralled by the adventures of the "Space Family Robinson" travelling around the galaxy in their iconic spaceship, the Jupiter 2.
This book takes over where previous fan generated efforts have left off. LiS wasn't just a "monster-of-the-week" show. In fact, considerable research into real space flight and serious science fiction concepts of space travel went into the show's design. Vestiges of this research can still be found in the function of the Jupiter 2 and the other equipment of the expedition.
Many of the fans, who watched the show as wide-eyed youngsters, went on to write the "tech manuals" that, with the rise of the Internet, have spread worldwide. The problem is that many of those works were more rooted in fantasy than the show was. This book changes that. Written by professionals and edited by an aerospace engineer, it makes the hardware as real as possible while remaining true to the stories. With seeming half of fandom writing stories and designing games for the other half, we expect this to become the standard reference for the expedition that was "Lost in Space."
