MoonFireA book released on the 40th anniversary of the Moon landing is to go on sale for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Only 12 copies of the special edition of MoonFire will come with a piece of Moon rock because of it’s scarcity.

The book is based on the accounts of Norman Mailer, the author and space enthusiast who died in 2007, with glossy photos of the landing, archives on Nasa and LIFE magazine and each copy signed by Buzz Aldrin.

1969 copies of the book are being produced in total – to represent the year of landing – with most available to buy online for around $1,000, but only 12 of them will come with pieces of Moon rock that crashed to Earth as meteorites.

Check out the Taschen website for more details.
