    Hand-picked favourites
    Simon Garfield, a man described by the Observer as 'a one-man Blue Peter team for intelligent adults' evaluates the importance of time and why we place so much emphasis on it in this eye-opening book.

    A book about our attempts to measure, control, sell, film, perform, immortalise and re-invent time, it also discusses why it is so meaningful. Looking back over the past 250 years, it focuses on stories including Roger Bannister's four-minute mile, a British watchmaker competing with the mighty Switzerland ad how a moment of war can be frozen forever.

    Enthusiastically written, this book will help you understand the concept of time in a whole new way. You definitely should set aside some time to read - and devour - this book!

Space Mission Art collects every one of these iconic designs, plus sticker sheets, to celebrate the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs. They are presented in full colour and glorious detail alongside the stories behind their design. There are also crew photos, mission facts and trivia that reveal the human face of space exploration, capturing the comedy, tragedy, bravery and beauty of these extraordinary adventures into the unknown.
