New book : Hasselblad and the Moon
Being a collector of Hasselblad cameras for years, I naturally became interested in Hasselblad cameras used by NASA for the Conquest of the Moon.
During my initial search, I quickly noticed that documentation related to these cameras was scarce and mostly incomplete.
So I started to collect cameras, lenses, photographs, instruction leaflets and all the data I could gather about Hasselblad and NASA.
After many years of research, here is the result : a book titled "Hasselblad and the Moon" which, hopefully, will help you get a better understanding of these wonderful Hasselblad cameras used by NASA.
This book is written in English and in French. There are 5 chapters :
- The conquest of the Moon
- The Hasselblad firm
- Hasselblad cameras used by NASA for the conquest of the Moon during Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions between 1968 and 1972
- Replicas made by Hasselblad for its own advertising
- Photographs taken in space and on the Moon showing Hasselblad cameras, astronauts training with Hasselblad cameras and Hasselblad cameras in Museums
I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
Price : 49 euros. 168 pages and 133 photographs.
