Universe: Exploring the Astronomical World

By Phaidon

Bridging art, astronomy and spirituality, this spectacular collection of nearly 300 images showcases the diverse approaches we take to explain our universe. Ranging from artworks to scientific sketches, to telescopic views, each selection conveys a different story about the beauty and vastness of space and our humble place in it.


"The night sky is the part of our environment that has been common to all cultures throughout human history. All have gazed up at the "vault of heaven" and interpreted it in their own way." --Martin Rees, British Astronomer Royal

"I believe everyone should have a broad picture of how the universe operates and our place in it. It is a basic human desire." --Stephen Hawking
