May the new year bring you unfathomable adventure! Happy holidays from ARTBOOK | D.A.P.

Featured photograph, of astronomer Johann Friedrich with Julius Schmidt's plaster model of the moon, 1898, is reproduced from The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space—a book that seems to carry the right spirit for a new year. "As the only heavenly body whose surface can be seen with the naked eye from earth, the moon has fascinated artists throughout the ages," Louisiana Museum of Modern Art curator Marie Laurberg writes. "Its round white disk has been an open projection screen for myths, imaginings and dreams. The moon is a basic symbol in which the inner world and outer space meet—science and folklore, fiction and technology, existential searching and the urge towards economic expansion. And in visual art these ideas are given condensed expression, where the moon is a mirror for mankind's thoughts about existence and our place in the world. What is important to us, to what do we ascribe value, how do we create meaning in the world? Ask the moon. It hovers in the sky like a blank white screen and shows us the stories we tell about it."
