The Mountains of the Moon


Early depictions of the moon show it as a colorful body, but at least dating back to the 1969 moon landing, the moon has been entirely black and white. Some believe this desaturation was caused by the television cameras used at that time; others believe the cause is related to the belief systems of ghosts.

Hi - I am a children's librarian at Memphis Public Library. I know this is random, but I am doing a book club about The Dark is Rising and I was wondering if it would be alright to use your pictures of the six signs. They are so cool! I love the image of them strapped to the belt. The pictures won't be used in any way except to help illustrate novel. You can email me at roacha@memphislibrary.org. Thanks! - ashley
