The hare and the Moon: a calendar of paintings

“A celebration of flora, fauna and country life, this simply stunning tome would make the perfect gift or coffee table book.” Countryside Magazine’s Book of the Month, October 2019

“The Hare and the Moon by Catherine Hyde is simply beautiful. A glorious treat for the bookshelves!” Stillwater Books

“Catherine Hyde’s book is one to stare and stare at.” Sam Read Books

“This can only be the kind of food for the soul we are all craving right now.” Tamsin Abbott, Artist

“There is so much knowledge and wisdom and poetry in this book. In every fibre of its creation.” Dom Conlon, Author

‘Waking from the winter solstice a hare begins her journey. Through the landscape and its changing seasons, moving in harmony with the moon. Atmospheric and gorgeous paintings show the hare running in January, watching in February, leaping in March until it comes full circle, sleeping in December. Twelve textless double-page paintings of the hare’s journey are accompanied by three full pages of art showing a tree, a flower and a bird for each month. This rich celebration of flora and fauna includes hawthorn and cowslips, swallows, blackbirds, buzzards and owls, harebells, holly, olive, Rowan, poppies and much more. Titbits of text – folklore, fairytale, myth and legend complimenting the art.’

    Catherine Hyde’s The Hare and the Moon: A Book of Paintings is a combination of (hauntingly beautiful) coffee table art book, country almanac, and mythic poetry collection, and it is just unbelievably gorgeous as a physical object to hold and enjoy. I know I’ll be going back again and again to some of those paintings, and I loved sharing the book with my kids as well. I was lucky enough to get an early review copy from Zephyr Books, but I already have a list of people in my head who would love it as a perfect Christmas gift, so I anticipate buying several more copies in the future!
