Mom's new atlas

Walked into Mom's living room to see she her proudly displaying a new tome. A friend gave her The New Atlas of the Moon by Firefly Books. The large-format, hard-cover book contains many wonderful photographs by Thierry Legault and well-written text by Serge Brunier (translated by Klaus R. Brasch). I like the acetate overlays atop the large photos. The brief historical essays are interesting.

One could get very excited about lunar observing with a book like this...
