The Rocket to the Moon
Thea Von Harbou, 1930
Welcome to the Beautiful Book Boutique. AbeBooks has many millions of books, many of which are rare books, collectible books, antiquarian books or unique books. They range in subject from collectible art books and antique sewing books to out-of-print encyclopaedia sets and more. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world.
Since humans first looked to the skies, long before Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, people have been fascinated by the beauty, mystery and dizzying vastness of what lies beyond the planet Earth. From the sun and the moon to stars, comets and planets, from rocketships and satellites to astronomy and astrology, our devotion to discovering and understanding the skies has showed itself in our industry, our technology and our design. Moons, suns, stars and more have long been popular themes throughout both the content and the decor of beautiful books, many of which are now scarce and collectible - but often highly affordable.
Enjoy this selection of some of the beautiful books with celestial-themed cover design available.
