New book to

commemorate Apollo

lunar missions

To coincide with the exciting, new exhibition for NASA’s Johnson Space Center, the Fairley Archive is to collaborate with photographer Steve Pyke and filmmaker NIchola Bruce in producing a stunning new book to commemorate the Apollo lunar missions.

Written by FASE curator Alastair Fairley, the full-colour, 112-page book will feature all of Steve Pyke’s stunning portraits of the surviving Apollo astronauts and key members of the NASA space programme. Mission-by-mission, the portraits will be further illustrated with outstanding photography taken by the astronauts in space and selected from the collection of original NASA photographs within the Fairley archive.

This will be the first such time all Pyke’s outstanding portraits of the Apollo astronauts will be published in their entireity. Together with the photographs taken on the Apollo missions, and full flight details, payload information and lunar walk data this will make a perfect addition to your collection, or as a special gift to commemorate this key period in man’s exploration history.

Perhaps you need a talk provided at your school? Your conference needs an exciting theme to attract delegates? Or may be your gallery, museum or Science Centre wants a dynamic, headline exhibition to bring in visitors or promote sales?

Already, our collaborations have seen us work with some of the most talented creative individuals worldwide, including leading photographer Steve Pyke, platinum-selling pop group Erasure and the award-winning documentary film-maker Nichola Bruce.

Our touring exhibition, Man on the Moon, opened to critical acclaim in July as part of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 and is set to tour to other galleries throughout the UK and Europe.
