Apollo astronauts weren’t just heroes, they were fantastic photographers. So believes Dutch designer Simon Phillipson, and that’s not something I’m going to argue with.

To make his point, Phillipson has collected two hundred and twenty five photos, taken by thirty three NASA astronauts, during the Apollo Moon flights, and published them in a book, Apollo VII – XVII, that he wrote with Floris Heyne, Joel Meter, and Delano Steenmeijer.
