The publisher Taschen is known for their affordable art books. Once in a while they also make special editions that are a little more expensive. The book they are planning on selling now is a different story. This book is likely to be one of the most expensive of the world. Several hundred thousand dollars it is expected to go on sale for; “Moonfire: The epic journey of Apollo 11” by Norman Mailer.
The cheap edition of this book will ‘only’ set you back 800 dollars. The real thing however, is a little bit more expensive. It does come with real pieces of lunar rock. Pieces that crashed on earth and somehow got into the hands of the publisher. Taschen will make only 12 of these books. If you would rather buy a house and opt for the budget edition, you still get very nice pictures provided by NASA and LIFE magazine. Each book, appropriately 1969 copies, will be signed by the second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin.
