5.0 out of 5 stars Nasa has a table top photo shop, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Space Shuttle a Photographic Journey 1981-2011 (Hardcover)
as a keen photographer I was eager to get hold of this very well reviewed book, WOW!, it just oozes sheer quality from the first image of the shuttles main engine on test, through chapters from roll out to the launch pad, lift off, in orbit, missions, internal shots, EVA's, re-entry, and landing, the images are fantastic, really breathtaking, a few never before seen, the early flights images are a bit grainy in some places, but these are due to the early morning lift off or night time, remember some of the earlier shots are pre digital, just good old film stock, remember film!!,overall the photographs are awesome with some nifty angles being shown, each image has a few lines of description, if it is the many facts and figures you want get the "haynes space shuttle manual", also available from amazon, at the back are all the mission crew lists, mission goals, dates, etc, and a beautiful collection of all the 135 STS flight badges, apart from the excellent images it is the sheer quality of the book that grabs your attention, the finest paper is used and the quality of the printing is second to none and is very professionally bound ,this is a heavy book which will reign supreme on your coffee table if you can put it down, this is a comprehensive overview of the shuttle programme from first to last flight, if you only buy one book showcasing shuttle images then is has to be this magnificent tome, I recommend this book very highly, buy it now.
