One of the most well-known of Kim's works, it was completed
in 1983, two years before the return of Halley's Comet.
This is how the comet appeared in several apparitions
near the South Pole. This was the frontispiece in COMET
by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan (American Edition) and was
the cover of the book for the international editions, and
the paperback version.
Halley's Over
Antarctica
In this unusual view of the rings of Saturn, Kim gives one
of his most accurate planetary portraits. Mimas is the
first major moon of Saturn. Voyager maps of the moon show
a huge crater named Herschel at 2 deg. S and 90 deg.
West--exactly the position to get this view. Future
explorers will see this magnificent angle of the majestic
rings. Saturn will always be in this position from this
spot, only changing in phase, as Mimas is locked in
position in its rotation.

Herschel
Kim's all-time favorite painting is also the most scarce of
the sold out prints, painted shortly after the third
launch of the space shuttle Columbia in 1982. He used
only a model, since there were not many photos, and there
never will be  of this angle! In this view only possible
through the eyes of the artist, the shuttle is about a
minute into flight, doing nearly Mach 1. This painting
fooled even those at NASA, who kept searching their files
for this "photo" upon seeing it on the cover of
theL5 NEWS. This was the cover of our 1996 Kim Poor
Calendar, now itself a collector's item.
Morning Launch
This painting was based upon the first IAAA workshop held
on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1982. While looking across
the caldera of Kilauea, he imagines a similar scene on
Io, the hyper-volcanic inner moon of Jupiter.

This small black and white print is actually a duotone
(two-color) print job to bring out the deep blacks of the
original. Globular Clusters are ancient stellar
"beehives" which roam in a halo around the
galaxy. They may contain up to a million stars, and are a
good target for binoculars. They consist of very old
stars, formed at the same time as the core of the galaxy.

Many of our prints are marked sold out. This means the regular limited edition has been completely sold. HOWEVER because of the secondary market or aftermarket, prints are resold or traded in to NOVASPACE for other items, or consigned back to us either by customers or investors.

Thus most of the "sold out" prints are, or become available on a limited basis, for a limited time, at a higher price. The availability changes constantly, so if you're interested, it is best to call us (1-800-727-NOVA) or email us (staff@novaspace.com) to check availability.

Prices are based upon many factors, but mainly reflect supply and demand. Many items continue to appreciate, and so may remain good investment values.


Disclaimer:--NOVASPACEART can make no claim as to the investment potential of any print, nor can we guarantee that we will always buy back a print which is sold out. You should only buy art because of its aesthetic value to you. The potential for appreciation is a bonus.

Perhaps the most famous of Kim' s prints, this was his
first serious foray into space art, and our first print
to sell out. Working closely with the Voyager spacecraft
imaging team, this work took months to complete. It shows
a crater on the polar region of Dione, Saturn's fourth
major moon. The white streaks are fissures filled with
fresh ice from beneath, and were caused by a cometary
impact on the reverse side of the moon. Dione is composed
of water ice, and the surface gravity is so low, you
could throw a rock into orbit.
Saturn from Dione
Although we like this hypothetical nebula in the diamond
shape, it can be hung in any direction. Nicely detailed
and brightly colored, this is one of the few prints to
surpass the original in quality.
Fire in the Sky
Our second commissioned print (Butterfly Nebula was the
first), this large print was limited to only 175 signed
and numbered, making it our rarest item. This is a summer
monsoon thunderstorm in Arizona, which is heat-driven,
and usually occur in the afternoon, creating havoc, a
stunning sunset, followed by clear summer nights.
Occasionally, they continue into the evening on
particularly a hot day, as seen here.
Moonlit Thunderstorm
Our first print by another artist (other than Kim Poor) was
this one by Mike Carroll. This photo-realistic piece was
based upon the IAAA Death Valley trip to Ubehebe Crater
in the north part of the valley. It is a short edition,
and was the cover of the ASTRONOMY magazine calendar a
few years back.
Io Caldera
This was our first "commissioned print", although
the original painting was done in 1980. As a commissioned
print, we announced the upcoming release of the print in
December 1992. We took orders for the print until January
31, 1993. The edition size was then determined by the
number of orders received, in this case 420. The print
was therefore sold out upon release.
Butterfly Nebula
Absolutely the fastest selling print we have ever done,
this stunner appeals to everyone because of its subject
matter, color and execution. A large print, this work
showcases the Pleaides star cluster (or Seven Sisters) in
Taurus. A bright, sparkling, tiny cluster of blue stars
unmistakable on winter nights.
