Description
It is presumed that this piece was done by the American artist Yukio Tashiro, who went on to illustrate a variety of children's science and science fiction books in the 1950s and '60s. Yukio Tashiro and his family were interned in the Gila River Internment Camp in Arizona by the United States government, from 1942 until the end of World War II in April of 1945. This image, with its particular structures and landscape, could be of that area.
