Full colour Portrait of Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko

This is a borderless 8 x 10 Photograph on Fuji/Kodak Paper

The actual print is sharper and more detailed than on the online image.

This is a superior quality photograph, suitable for autographing, matting or framing. Great for collecting the autographs of the astronauts.
