Charming Moon (16 photos)

While we've seen our share of forced perspective photos, we haven't seen ones as charming as this. Created by landscape astrophotographer and astronomy journalist Laurent Laveder, these are part of his project titled "Moon Games." His new book, Quartier libre, is a collection of 19 moon pictures and accompanying calligrams, each written by different authors. As Leveder states, it's a "small book dedicated to our Moon." More than anything, the project shows that a creative side exists inside all of us. How, by using a few, simple props, and a bit of imagination, you can make the moon become anything you wish.

You can preview the book, here, or see more of his moon photos on his website. via [NPR]
