    Description

    Apollo 11: Paul Calle Original Signed Pencil Drawing of Neil Armstrong Suiting Up the Morning of the Launch, on a Large "First Man On The Moon" First Day Cover, from the Calle Family Collection. A 9.5" x 6.25" white envelope bearing one of the C76 10¢ Airmail stamp with the dual "Moon Landing/ Jul 20 1969" and "Washington, DC Sep 9 1969" machine cancellation. This detailed drawing is based on what he experienced as the only artist present when the crew suited up pre-flight. It is pencil-signed at right: "Paul Calle". A chance to own a piece of original art, perfect for framing, from this master space artist and stamp designer. A great companion piece to the legendary "Suiting Up" limited edition print. Excellent.

    "Paul was with us in the early morning of July 16, 1969, doing what he does best, drawing. Some of the finest images of that morning of the launch come from his sketchbooks." -Deke Slayton
