Droga w kosmos is the Polish title of the autobiography by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human in outer space. It was originally published in Russian as Дорога в космос in 1961, soon after Gagarin’s successful flight in the Vostok 1 capsule, and a year later in English as Road to the Stars. Translated by Czesław Czarnogórski, the shown edition was issued in 1981 by Wydawnictwo Ministerstwa Obrony Narodowej, the publishing house of the Polish Ministry of Defense.

Neo Prisma was chosen to go with the cover art by Michał Bernaciak. The accompanying sans appears to be Paneuropa, a Polish knockoff of Futura.
