Product info

 Both an artistic icon and an object of scientific curiosity, the moon has captured humankind’s imagination since the beginning of time. The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space offers a captivating look at the iconography of this celestial body, exploring the many and varied ways that it has been mythologized in our culture, creative pursuits and scientific endeavors throughout the ages. Within these pages, you’ll find Space Race illustrations; silent film stills; dreamy surrealist paintings; snapshots from the first manned moon landing; ancient Aztec artifacts; 19th-century scientific models; moonlit Romantic-era landscape portraits; and so much more. Interspersed throughout this imagery are illuminating essays from art curators, astronomers, authors and astrophysicists, which delve deep into our collective interest in the moon. Also included are a series of lunar poems from the likes of Emily Dickinson, Sappho, Sylvia Plath and Walt Whitman, as well we an imaginative short story from the Italian writer Italo Calvino. A stunning survey of our fascination with this beloved satellite planet, this book would make a great gift for art lovers and aspiring astronomers alike.
