This is a masterpiece that crystallizes the experience and imagination of Andersen, who loves traveling and has a deep knowledge of history. It contains 33 short stories that resemble prose poems, with the moon in the night sky narrating stories woven by people on earth to a painter. In this edition, newly reprinted by Iwanami Shoten in 2022, each story features a watercolor painting by picture book author Maiko Matsumura. The binding of the book, which uses a die-cut outer box, is beautiful, and the book has been reborn as a book that allows you to visually experience the richly poetic world depicted by Andersen.
