Product Description

Review

'Absolutely beautiful images ... should fascinate both scientific boffins and the youngest of children captivated by the night sky' Daily Mail.

From the Inside Flap

The delicate glow of the Milky Way, the dramatic silhouette of an eclipse, or the distant glimmer of the Evening Star - the beauty of the night sky has captivated and inspired viewers for millennia. Today, with sight extended through the latest technological advances, we can see more of the Universe than ever before, witnessing breathtaking wonders way beyond our own galaxy. This sumptuous and striking collection brings together the 100 most beautiful, intriguing and majestic images of the cosmos, celebrating each as a spectacular work of art in its own right. Every carefully curated chapter presents a new aesthetic theme - Light and Shadow, Order and Chaos, Fire and Ice - by which to explore the Universe. Collected here are the impressionistic swirls of remote star systems, the abstract splashes of volcanic terrains, the surrealist landscapes of interstellar nebulae, and the pop-art geometries of planetary maps. Each extraordinary image is accompanied by an explanation of the science behind the phenomenon and the techniques used to capture it. From the turbulent cloudscapes of the giant planets, through furious seas of celestial surf, to distant galaxies sculpted by the forces of gravity over billions of years, The Cosmic Gallery is a magnificent selection of the most stunning space images, and invites a beautiful new perspective on the cosmos.

As soon as I saw this book I knew I had to have it. It is a beautiful collection of some of the most recent space images. There are stunning close ups of all the planets and many of their moons, as well as amazing shots of distant nebulae and galaxies. The accompanying text is concise and highly informative.

I saw this on Kindle for 56p! At this price almost anything would be a bargain. But I must admit I had expected the pictures to be full page size and was disappointed that, on an iPad, they measured only 2.5 by 3 inches, surrounded by text. To have images the size of a large stamp really does not do them justice.

A fine collection of all that's best in astrophotography. The reproduction quality is exceptional, and would make a superb present for anyone with a fleeting interest in space or the stars.

... as a birthday present for my son. It was one of those gifts I would have wanted someone to buy me. He is delighted.
