From a series inspired by Italo Calvino's "Cosmicomics," a lovely little book full of fanciful vignettes about the origins of the universe. This illustrates a time, early in earth's history, when the moon was much closer and the earth was all ocean. A time when you could just put a ladder up to the moon to harvest its moon-milk. Good times.

For the star-gazing dreamer in your life.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing the original. See my other listings for other work in this series.

At one time, according to Sir George H. Darwin, the Moon was very close to the Earth. Then the tides gradually pushed her far away: the tides that the Moon herself causes in the Earth's waters, where the Earth slowly loses energy.
-Italo Calvino, "Cosmicomics"
