From Strawberry to Dragon, Harvest to Storm, the full moon is known by many names around the world and across the seasons, and each name has a story behind it. This beautiful photographic celebration of our closest celestial neighbor captures the visual wonder and the connection we feel to the moon. Including three dozen folk names and short evocative explanations drawn from Native American, Inuit, Celtic, medieval English, Hindu, Chinese, Japanese, and pagan cultures, Seasons of the Moonpresents an inspired visual pairing for each, taken in the month the folk name represents. Featuring a poetic moon die-cut cover, this portrait of our eternal fascination with the moon is a welcome companion as we look to the sky throughout the seasons.
