Unique letterpress poster composed with vintage wooden type. A tribute to the astronauts that made it to the moon during the manned Apollo missions 1968 to 1972. The inner ring represents those that actually set foot on the moon, the outer ring those who have orbited the Moon. Scott and Cernan were lucky (brave?) enough to make the journey twice.
The poster uses a rare typeface evoking the atmosphere, of the UK and US in the late 1960s, that the astronauts were leaving behind them.
