Apollo 11 Codices
Book II: Apollo 11 and Book III: Apollo 11, The Recovery
1) Tissue Paper, Pen and Airbrushed Ink on Paper
2) Ink and Charcoal on Paper
These codices are part of a series of three created by artist Mitchell Jamieson after he observed the return of the Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969. One book contains Jamieson’s firsthand observations of the activities aboard the USS Hornet, the aircraft carrier sent to retrieve the astronauts from their ocean landing zone. The other represents Jamieson’s musings on humanity’s encounter with the lunar surface. Together they offer an intimate vision of this historic moment.
