Universe: Exploring the Astronomical World


From ancient cave paintings to engravings from the 1600s, and modern-day animations to NASA photos, “Universe: Exploring the Astronomical World” is an investigation of space. With over 300 images, this hardcover spans all kinds of mediums and mindsets, proving just how fascinating we humans have always seen, and continue to see, our universe.
