Was it not the image of a landscape, after all, that led to the work’s famous epithet "Moonlight Sonata"? In a way, listening to the sonata resembles looking at a landscape painting by Caspar David Friedrich or William Turner, and losing oneself in the rapt observation of the distant satellite. The editor of this art-inspired almanac has divided the artists’ visual ideas into different chapters, and accentuated them with selected haiku poetry, exquisite quotes, art-inspired slogans and illustrations. The result is a multifaceted homage from the imaginative perspective of artists that reminds us: The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
