Notes From Your Bookseller

A jaw dropping wonder of a book in which art, history, production and design come together seamlessly in a love letter to the achievements of the Apollo space program and its manned flights. Four hundred images, culled from 35,000, all meticulously restored, the labor of a passionate quest to see clearly what the astronauts saw. Andy Saunders hits every high note, highlights the human side to the missions, and takes us as close as we will likely get to stepping on the moon. What a thrill just to turn the pages and take it all in.

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the last steps taken on the moon, this unique, definitive book about the Apollo missions reveals hundreds of extraordinary, newly-restored, and all-new images from the NASA archives that provide a never-before-seen perspective on the Apollo endeavors.

In Houston, Texas, there is a frozen vault that preserves the original NASA photographic film of the Apollo missions. For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these frozen originals. Over the last few years, NASA image restorer Andy Saunders has been working hard. Taking newly available digital scans and applying pain-staking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Never-before-seen spacewalks and crystal-clear portraits of astronauts in their spacecraft, along with startling new visions of the Earth and the Moon, offer astounding new insight into one of our greatest endeavors.

This is the definitive record of all Apollo missions and a mesmerizing, high-definition journey into the unknown.
