    Richard Henry Arbib was considered one of the leading industrial designers in the United States in the years following World War II. By the 1950s, he had established himself as one of the true visionaries in his field, producing groundbreaking design concepts not only for automobiles, but for a range of products that included wristwatches, pens, boats and even personal helicopters -- designs so innovative than many of them would still be considered advanced today.

    Peters’s photographs are defined by their precision, love of detail, and exquisite lighting. With an aesthetic reminiscent of Jeanloup Sieff or Herb Ritts, Peters captures even the most photographed of faces—whether Scarlett Johansson, Monica Bellucci, or Penélope Cruz, Charlize Theron, John Malkovich, or Emma Watson—with previously unseen nuance, creating a new sense of intimacy. His work has appeared in Vogue, Glamour, and GQ and defined fashion campaigns from Dior to Hugo Boss to Yves Saint Laurent. Learn More

    One of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Norman Mailer was hired by Life Magazine in 1969 to cover the Moon shot. He enhanced his reportage in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, which is excerpted here. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved--from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun to the crucial NASA support staff to the three astronauts--Mailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of crystal-clear photographs, often full page, of the capsule, equipment, one the moon, from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections.
