Lot #132: Led Zeppelin II Album Signed by Artist David Juniper & Frank Borman, the Apollo Astronaut Who's on the Cover Because Juniper Thought He Was Neil Armstrong -- Borman Writes ''Not Neil Armstrong!''


Charming autographs by Apollo astronaut Frank Borman, and designer David Juniper on the cover of the Led Zeppelin II album. Juniper writes a passage about how he came to design the album cover, which shows a photo of a WWI German fighting squadron, their faces replaced by the band members and other famous individuals including Frank Borman. Juniper did this because he thought Borman was Neil Armstrong, leading Borman to write a funny inscription, ''Not Neil Armstrong! / Frank Borman / Apollo 8 CDR''.

Juniper's inscription reads, ''The music of Led Zeppelin I had blown me away and so on spec, I mocked up a fold-out design for the second album and took it to Led Zeppelin's manager. / David Juniper, designer of the cover art for Led Zeppelin II''. Both autographs penned in black felt-tip. Near fine condition. With LOA from Juniper and Novaspace COA for Borman.
