Reel book: Near real time

This book is reminiscent of old film reels, it reflects the nostalgia of the 1960’s and analogue technologies used to record data and images from the Apollo 11 transmission. Three ‘pages’ shaped like reels form the book with three windows per page turning to reveal day and night views of the earth, the moon and the sky. The book’s ‘cover’ is a found film reel canister.
