Abstract:

"Held in cloth covered bandoleer. Apollo 11, the first manned mission to the moon, landed on July 20, 1969. In honor of the fortieth anniversary of this event students at the Archetype Press created their own exploration in type. Each student produced a single sheet that became a two page spread with information that ranges from the Bill Safire's memo 'In event of moon disaster' to a transcription of the final transmissions between the lunar module, the command module, and Houston before the words: 'Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed'"--Statement from Michael R. Thompson, Booksellers.
