Celebrate today's Supermoon with 'The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space'

In honor of today's Supermoon (affectionately nicknamed "Snow Moon"), which so happens to be the brightest and largest of 2019, we are featuring Max Ernst's 1969 oil painting, "The Birth of a Galaxy" from The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space. This book is special because it features renderings of the moon both artistic and scientific over the past several centuries. It also contains an unusual blend of critical and literary texts. For example, "The Moon" by Jorge Luis Borges:
There is such loneliness in that gold.
The moon of the nights is not the moon
Whom the first Adam saw. The long centuries
Of human vigil have filled her
With ancient lament. Look at her. She is your mirror.
