Apollo VII-XVII by Floris Heyne, Joel Meter, and Simon Phillipson

Staff Pick

Apollo VII-XVII (Te Neues, $65), put together by Floris Heyne, Joel Meter, Simon Phillipson, and Delano Steenmeijer, contains highly rendered photographs, some never before published, taken by Apollo astronauts.  Each chapter briefly summarizes one mission, but keeps the text to a minimum, letting the images tell the story—as they so brilliantly do. Given nearly a full page, the pictures make this a breathtaking visual experience. One moment you could be looking out the porthole of an actual Apollo spacecraft as it passes the Earth, and the next you’re on the lunar surface gazing at an astronaut in the distance. Each image exudes a quiet majesty and beauty that is simply awe-inspiring. Periodically the book also achieves a sort of climax with the inclusion of splash pages that highlight a single image across a double-page spread. These are particularly stunning. The book also includes a guide to the photographic equipment used during Apollo.
