Moon is a fascinating exploration of our nearest neighbour and brightest object in our night sky. The Moon has always been a magical and mystical icon throughout human history. Since the beginning of time, humans have been in awe of the Moon, worshipping it, painting it, writing about it and even howling at it. This beautiful book looks at the Moon from many different angles: historically, as an object of worship; traditionally, as one of the first objects for scientific research in the solar system; artistically, the Moon features in paintings (Rousseau, Chagall etc) books (Moonfleet, the Moonspinners, The Moon's a Balloon etc) films (Moonstruck, Moonraker, Moonlighting etc) endless music (from Moonlight sonata and Clair de Lune to Bad Moon Rising and Moon River); and finally scientifically, an exploration of the historic journey to the Moon and back in 1969.
