"From previously classified photographs relating to the ill-fated Soyuz 2 space mission (the first to feature man and canine), Fontcuberta has pieced together the tragic story of [Soviet cosmonaut] Istochnikov and the dog Kloka. In so doing, he has created a book in the grand tradition of Soviet propaganda photobooks... We will never know the exact fate of cosmonaut and cosmodog, but Fontcuberta has brilliantly cut through government red tape to reconstruct and illustrate this tale of heroism and official cover-up."--Parr and Badger
