Travel the night sky and discover the stories in the stars.
‘What a beautiful book it is! A treasured possession.’ Mary Beard
'No astronomy book can claim to be as beautiful as the night sky, but Stories in the Stars comes closest!' Tristan Gooley
Look up: above us is a jet-black canvas pricked with white dots, and a carnival of animals, mythical creatures, gods and goddesses in its shining constellations.
Here, Susanna Hislop – writer and stargazer – and Hannah Waldron – international artist – leap between centuries, cultures and traditions to present a whole universe of stories in all their blazing glory.
Stories in the Stars is an imaginative and whimsical exploration of each of the night sky’s 88 constellations: a playful and stunningly illustrated compendium.
