An absolutely beautiful collection of photographs, this book is awe-inspiring. It is a book that I would love to own and prominently display. Of particular fascination are the photographs from the earliest days of space exploration; the earliest space walks, the rendezvous missions. There is no other word to describe the images other than "incredible".
