    Description

    Apollo 8 Large "Earthrise" Color Photo Signed by Borman and Lovell. A 20" x 16" silk-finish photo, one of the most iconic images of the twentieth century. On Christmas Eve of 1968, the Apollo 8 crew read and broadcast the biblical creation story back to earth from lunar orbit. This print has the verses printed in the dark background as read by each. Two of the crew have signed beneath their respective passages: "James Lovell/ Apollo 8 CMP" and "Frank Borman/ Apollo 8 CDR", both in gold ink. A very impressive presentation. Very fine.

    Included with the lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from Novaspace signed by Kim Poor for the Frank Borman signature.
