The Condon Committee was the informal name of the University of Colorado UFO Project, a group funded by the United States Air Force from 1966 to 1968 at the University of Colorado to study unidentified flying objects under the direction of physicist Edward Condon. The result of its work, formally titled Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects, and known as the Condon Report, appeared in 1968.  

This 380 page perfect bound book designed out of Edward U Condon’s UFO case studies along with images and diagrams. Since this book was designed the same time period Area 51 was being questioned; it seemed fitting to design around the concept of government information hidden from the public.
