About this deal

Although there are many breathtaking photos, my favorite may be Ed White, gazing into the heavens from his Gemini IV capsule.

After then dedicating over 10,000 hours to restoring flight film from the Apollo missions, Apollo Remastered is a stunning book that sheds new light on humanity's very first ventures to the Moon, drawing out previously unseen details. Until then, these images are probably the best images available that show what it was like to travel through space and to walk and explore on the moon.Apollo Remastered by Andy Saunders provided me with a masterful pictorial review of my great days serving as a crewman on four lunar missions. It's clear that Saunders has reverence for the subject matter, but particularly for the astronauts involved for their skill and bravery.

The restoration project Apollo Remastered brings out new details and shows the missions as experienced by the astronauts for the first time - it’s a voluminous coffee table book that offers the reader a mesmerizing vision of the bygone moon landing era. For the first time, every image has been digitally remastered from the original flight film, or HD transfers of the 16mm ‘movie’ film, to produce the highest quality Apollo photographs, and the most complete photographic record of these historic missions ever published. Never-before-seen detail, and input from those who made the incredible voyages make Apollo Remastered the ultimate photographic record of humankind’s greatest adventure. Every image is accompanied by an explanatory caption, including quotes from the astronauts at the moment they were taken. But these photos some how bring back home just how remarkable these missions were, how dangerous and unknown, and how moving they must have been for the men involved.The amount of work that's gone into putting it all together must be immeasurable, but the result is just literally out of this world. The 30 Inch (76cm) Limited Edition prints are strictly limited to 50 in number and the 48 Inch (122cm) Special Edition prints are limited to only 10 in number.

Andy Saunders brings new life to images we have long since cherished and, in some cases, have never seen before. The magnificent final chapter details the history of space photography and even the techniques of the restoration. In the week of release it became a Sunday Times bestseller - the most expensive book ever to do so, and was the No.The photos are accompanied by short mission summaries and detailed information about the photographer and technical specs of the film and cameras where known. As per the subtitle, this is truly the ultimate photographic record of the Apollo missions (with a small but not insignificant intro from Mercury and Gemini). Most of the images you’ll have seen from the missions are reproductions of reproductions and have lost a lot of their detail and vibrancy. This is as close as any of us will get to joining the Apollo astronauts on their historic missions to the moon-and it's a lot closer than we ever thought possible.

The Sunday Times Bestseller, Apollo Remastered is a large format book featuring over 400 of the highest quality Apollo photographs ever published.Punctured with crisp whites and an unbelievable amount of visual detail - they wouldn’t look out of place in a movie like Interstellar or Gravity. Andy Saunders hits every high note, highlights the human side to the missions, and takes us as close as we will likely get to stepping on the moon. This book, like all of Andy’s work, is much more than a thrill to behold; it’s a profound contribution to our understanding of humanity’s exploration of the heavens. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). In addition to many never-before-seen images, every classic image - including some of the most iconic and reproduced photographs of all time, are included and presented in unprecedented detail and clarity.
