As the Cold War raged on between the Soviet Union and the United States, both nations battled to achieve supremacy in space exploration. This rivalry sparked an ambitious Space Race, especially after Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel to outer space in 1961. This unbelievable mission is commemorated in our special newspaper book.
Our Space Race newspaper book is filled with extraordinary headlines written in the Telegraph during the adventurous Space Race, allowing you to follow along with newspaper reports to see the efforts of both nations to put a man on the moon. Beginning in 1961 and chronicling all the events of the sixties, our book includes all the important newspaper articles printed at the time, which kept the public informed of each nation’s dedication to the mission. With a Name and Message included, this book makes a fascinating gift for a history lover!

Customer service very polite and helpful, willing to solve the issue with a coupon for discounts which would not apply.
Solution was to offer me a refund for the correspondent discount, which I agreed.
Thank you, Rachel

Good quality products
The products and the service are excellent but the package used for posting is not good.
I ordered a book and it came with two corners damaged, it was replaced but the second book arrive with one corner damaged. I have managed to make the corner better. I suggest they put extra protection on the corners. I would order again as the products are good
