Neil Armstrong Tribute


"Using pencils, Photoshop and Illustrator, UK-based Mitchell Nelson has created a striking tribute poster to Neil Armstrong. The project shows an illustration of the first man on the moon on one side and a typographic piece of Armstrong's most famous quote, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind," on the other." -- Neil Armstrong / Tribute Poster on the Behance Network

That's one fine tribute and font, to boot!

I really really like that. Dang- it actually got me choked up.

Continuing the endless debate: should the quote be remembered as Armstrong intended to say it (One small step for a man) or as he actually said it (One small step for man)? I prefer the latter, but that's just me.

"One small step for a man" is more poetic than the way it came out. I say the man who did the deed gets the final edit.
