The moon has been providing inspiration for artists and writers for centuries, if not longer. Whether the tenth century work, The Bamboo Cutter or Jules Vernes classic From the Earth to the Moon or the more recent The Distance of the Moon from Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics, lovely Luna has been a source tapped, time and again, for the literary endeavors of many an artist. For good reason! Not only is the moon the most prevalent and beautiful of the heavenly bodies in the night sky, but the moon carries with it a sense of intrigue and mystery, even in today’s post -lunar landing world. Not only that, but the moon’s effect on earth is one of the reason our planet can maintain the life it does.
