September 2018 Non-Fiction Book of the Month | This sumptuous book, packed with gorgeous full and double-page illustrations by Thomas Hegbrook, will appeal to a very broad audience. Its subject – of course – is the Moon, our nearest and most familiar neighbour in space, and a source of fascination to mankind for thousands of years. Chapters cover both what we know of the moon, and what we’ve imagined; there are detailed and fascinating explanations of the moon’s physical relationship to Earth, and lots too on the Apollo missions and space exploration. Also included are different cultures’ moon myths, and examples of the beautiful poetry it has inspired. And there are quirky, unexpected facts – it seems the moon really can affect our behaviour for example. A book to intrigue and inform.
A highly informative book filled with stunning illustrations that bring the wondrous cosmological subject matter to life, published to coincide with the anniversary of the moon landing, The Moon is a comprehensive guide to all things lunar.
For centuries, mankind has gazed up at the Moon in awe and wonder.
The Moon has been a source of both aspiration and inspiration to astronomers, poets, mathematicians and artists alike. But how much do we know about our closest neighbour? In this book, you'll discover the history of man's relationship with the Moon – the science, the myths, the facts and the fiction – and how it affects our everyday lives and the world around us.
