The Conquest of Space (1962?) (Part 1)
This is a "chocolate stamp" book from Australia. The date is around 1962-1964 but I have not figured it out exactly. Nestle's chocolate company put collectable stamps inside chocolate bars and them gave kids the option of buying an album to put them in. So the resolution of these images may not be great because the actual image is a small stamp.
This certificate of membership was often part of these books. They had several different stamp books on different subjects. I know of also one on "the world on wheels" and one about aircraft.
Not really sure what the artist was doing that made them imagine the Moon's surface like this.
