The Moon on $5.00 a Day (1969)

A fun bit of ephemera, a greeting card/humorous manual from 1969 about going to the Moon.

Probably inspired by the upcoming Moon landing. Certainly intended as a joke gift from one adult to another, it is a fun short read.

The Moon on $5.00 a day. Jack Clements. Illustrated by Dan Henrich. American Greeting Corp. (24 pp.) 1969. "Hi Brows" series 100 M 55690.

 First you need a good reason to go to the Moon.

Prepare yourself with knowledge about the Moon.

Consider inviting your friends so the cost is easier to take.

 Finally always have an "exit plan" in case it does not work out for you.


  1. I enjoyed this very much - thanks for posting!

  2. My wife just through this in the recycling bin. Annoyed me.
