'Artists’ book by Ferdinand Kriwet created while in America documenting the 8 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes, and 35 second moon launch of Apollo 11 in 1969. Profusely illustrated, a day-by-day journal featuring texts, newspaper articles, travel forms, photographs, sounds, advertisements, illustrations, diagrams, concrete poems, collages, radio transmissions, and television footage all relating to the Apollo moon project. The dos-à-dos binding creates two distinct yet overlapping narratives surrounding this historic event. Somewhat reminiscent of Marshall McLuhan’s 1967 book ‘The Medium is the Massage,’ but more poetic in its execution.' (Source) www.theideaofthebook.com
