Author(s): Mike Goldsmith
This unique book is a lavish tour of the Universe, showing you hidden details you will never have seen before. Each superb, double-page artwork takes you further and further from our home planet, and offers a short piece of descriptive text to place the scene in context, both visually and scientifically. The text is short, light in tone and unobtrusive, allowing the reader to absorb the visual information while learning the key facts at a glance. A reference section at the back of the book (8 pages) summarizes all of the scientific information, in the form of a timeline or series of diagrams, while the artwork spreads focus on telling each amazing story. Dr Mike Goldsmith's narrative journeys across the Cosmos are a truly engaging and enjoyable way to explore the secret parts of the Universe to which we have not yet travelled.
