Description

Since 1961, the United States of America has launched men and women into the hostile vacuum of space. For the adventures on which they were about to embark, astronauts, associates and designers commemorated each mission by creating a unique insignia that the crew could wear with pride on their spacesuits. Space Mission Art collects every one of these iconic designs, plus sticker sheets, to celebrate the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs. They are presented in full colour and glorious detail alongside the stories behind their design. There are also crew photos, mission facts and trivia that reveal the human face of space exploration, capturing the comedy, tragedy, bravery and beauty of these extraordinary adventures into the unknown. AUTHOR: Luke Wesley Price is a British graphic designer of over 20 years experience in branding, advertising and imagery, who founded his own design agency in 2008. He has had a lifelong passion for America’s space history, from Project Mercury through to Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, and beyond. He is the author of Space Shuttle: A Photographic Journey (Ammonite Press).
