Marking the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's `small step', and published to coincide with Royal Museums Greenwich's exhibition The Moon, this landmark work explores people's fascination with our only natural satellite. Edited by the exhibition's curators, Melanie Vandenbrouck, Megan Barford, Louise Devoy and Richard Dunn, this book illuminates how art and science meet in our profound connection with the Moon. It features authors from a variety of disciplines, including cultural historians, curators, a scientist, a poet and a space lawyer among others.

Highly illustrated with 180 colour and black and white images this book is a treasure trove for all Moon lovers.
