A perfect gift to inspire a child
Buzz Aldrin's Reaching For The Moon Book
Cover Painting Inscribed to Him and Lois by Wendell Minor, with
Three Signed Copies of the Book, Originally from Their Personal
Collection, in Framed Display, with Certificate of
Authenticity. Aldrin's first children's book was a
collaboration with renowned artist and illustrator, Wendell Minor.
The result was Reaching For The Moon, published in 2005 and
a New York Times bestseller. Minor presented Dr. Aldrin with
this original watercolor rendition of the back cover that is
inscribed by Minor on the verso: "To Buzz and Lois! With best
wishes, Wendell". Sight size is 10" x 12", matted and framed to
an overall 18" x 22". Included with this lot are three copies of
the book, each signed by Aldrin. Very fine.
We think there is likely a young mother or father out there who would love to have this art work hanging in their child's room to inspire them along with reading the book of Buzz's adventures and challenges from his youth leading up to him becoming a NASA astronaut and landing on the moon on the Apollo 11 mission. Or could very likely appeal to a baby boomer grandparent for their grandchild.
