Celebrate American Independence and the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing with 'The Moon 1968–1972'

In July of 1969, Apollo 11 astronaut and Lunar Module Pilot "Buzz" Aldrin shot this photograph of Tranquility Base and the American flag with a 70mm Hasselblad camera specially designed for outer space. "Prior to their missions," publisher Tom Adler writes, "all of the Apollo astronauts trained extensively with the sophisticated Hasselblads, taking hundreds of photographs in challenging real and simulated settings in order to familiarize themselves with the technology. They were even encouraged to take the cameras on family trips. Once they reached the Moon, the astronauts wandered like tourists, photographing 'targets of opportunity' and whatever else they found interesting or dramatic. The most iconic images have become part of our collective human memory."
