Fancy a map to the Moon? Or indeed further into space? You need Out There: The Solar System For Tourists by Herb Lester Associates.

It's an incredibly cool thing that doesn't cost a fortune, even more so if you are planning a spot of space travel in the near future. It combines must-see spots from popular science fiction books and films with hard facts about the environments you'll encounter if you do head off into deep space, courtesy of sci-fi author and journalist Matthew De Abaitua.

But that's only half the story. There's also the design, with those vintage-style illustrations being the work of Paul Rogers. Good work there. The guide is A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm) and litho-printed in England on 100% recycled paper.

It's available for a bargain £4 from Herb Lester Associates. Also, if you want some mood music to listen to while you browse your map, you can download an accompanying 12-track album of vintage space-inspired grooves from Trunk Records for just 50p. Both for under a fiver, you can't argue with that.
