Working with NASA's archives of Hasselblad images, aerospace author Piers Bizony presents the ultimate must-have large-format book, Moonshots. The Apollo voyages form the centerpiece of the book, but equally fabulous images from precursor Gemini missions are also featured, along with pictures taken by Space Shuttle crews, and during construction of the International Space Station.

The extraordinary photographs taken by NASA astronauts over the past fifty years were captured almost exclusively on Hasselblad cameras. Many of these images have been reproduced, but there's one element that has seldom been exploited: the sheer size and resolution of the film frames.

Just in time for the 50 year anniversary of the USA's first orbit of The Moon, this incredible collection is a must have for any space enthusiast, or sci-fi lover.
