Taschen – 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 – Buzz Aldrin

Taschen - 50th anniversary of Apollo 11

Not our regular artist's edition feature .... but this is so cool .... !!!

On July 20, 1969, the world was transformed by a historic event of epic proportions as the Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their first steps on the Moon. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, TASCHEN presents six photographs from the mission for an exclusive set of 1,000 fine art prints signed on verso by Buzz Aldrin.

Buzz Aldrin made history as one of the first men to walk on the Moon. A graduate of West Point, he earned his Sc.D. in Astronautics from MIT before joining NASA, and the Gemini XII and Apollo 11 missions. He is the founder of the Human Spaceflight Institute, a nonprofit committed to advancing human spaceflight beyond low Earth orbit.
