We are nearing the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, which delivered the first men to walk on the moon July 20, 1969. July of 2019 will mark the half-century anniversary of this unparalleled milestone. Celebrate humanity’s achievement a year early with The Apollo Photo Book.
The Apollo Photo Book is a beautifully curated compendium of vivid photography from Apollo missions VII through XVII. Authors Floris Heyne, Joel Meter, Simon Phillipson, and Delano Steenmeije sifted through the NASA photo records to unearth the rarest and most vibrant images from the 11 moon missions embarked on by NASA from 1968 to 1972. With 225 awe-inspiring photos and a chapter on the camera equipment used by the astronauts (cameras like the Hasselblad 500 E, designed specifically for the lunar missions) the Apollo Photo Book is the ultimate immersive photographic companion to the missions that helped elevate the human race.
