Apollo 8 Earthrise – Erdaufgang Über Dem Mond by NASA

This is the famous image of the earth rising above the moon. It was taken during the Apollo8 mission by the astronauts as they became the first humans to circumnavigate the Moon.  (taken from Nasa) Surely this image was made with a Hasselblad camera, state of the art, like the printing of this lithograph from the sixties. It was also a clear historical statement to the political situation at that time. Today this image belongs to the top 100 photographs the world, voted by time magazine.

The Lithograph condition is rated in category C-, which you can read more about in our the facts section. It has minor cuts and bruises on the edges (the beauty of original vintage), which can be seen on the high res. pop-up image of the product. Sadly this print has, next to the fold on the upper left, two pin holes on the right hand corners (visible next to our pink magnetic pins). Allover it is still a great eye-catcher and the silver printing is just awesome.
