Praise For…


Richly rendered woodblock-style illustrations by Wormell hearken back to the magical precision of early illustrations by celestial observers, mixing close-up detail, wider-range views, and diagrams, including a dazzling view of the evolving universe. Prinja’s understatedly expert text balances comprehensive information on each subject with approachable explanations of wonder-inducing science...A mesmerizing resource for astronomy buffs young and old.
