Moon: An Illustrated History

Moon An Illustrated History cover


Shoot for the stars with Moon: An Illustrated History, a brief overview of the beloved celestial body told in one hundred vignettes, each accompanied by a full-page, full-color illustration. Beginning with speculations on its mode of creation and ending with a peek into the near-future plans for a “Moon Village,” David Warmflash’s short volume covers the discoveries of Copernicus, the lunar goddess of Greek mythos, the Apollo trials and errors, and the influence and contributions of figures such as Jules Verne and Katherine Johnson. As engaging as the stories are, the illustrations are an even further delight. Photographs, lunar charts, and Baroque paintings all blend together to create an equally enticing narrative of their own. Aspiring astronomers, space enthusiasts, or anyone with a bare coffee table would be remiss not to add Moon to their collection.
