This Is Why A Book About The Moon Costs $US90,500

I included the $US1,500 Moonfire book—Norman Mailer's account of the Apollo 11—in our space gifts guide. The last 12 books of the 1969-unit edition are $US90,500 each. Ninety-thousand-and-five-hundred United States doubloons, people. Here's why.

A funky fancy table and a lunar rock. Just that. Sure, the lunar rock sounds worthy, but when they tell you it's from a Moon meteor that crashed against our planet, it somehow gets me from wet to dry instantly. I guess a rock brought by the astronauts would add a zero or two to the $US90,500 figure, but it just doesn't have the same flair as the "real" thing. [Fast Company]
