Details

Written and compiled by an art historian and an astronomer, this illuminating volume identifies the many ways in which the Moon has influenced physics, history, art and popular culture since antiquity. Using an enormous range of images, from a prehistoric ‘sky disk’ to a photograph taken by the Galileo spacecraft, the book explores a miscellany of topics including eclipses, lunar cycles and tides, Space Race propaganda, the Apollo missions and lunar rovers, ancient moon deities, werewolves, lunacy and supermoons. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
