This functional map shows every star directly observable by the naked eye indicated by magnitude and brightness. Also mapped are the nebulae, star clusters and galaxies visible from Earth.
Original 17th century illustrations by Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius depict the creatures and characters that inspired ancient astronomers to identify the constellations - included both Latin and English names. Their intricacy contrasts against eye-popping fluo, shimmering metallics and midnight blue, bringing the constellations to life. The result is a unique, educational map that makes a fantastic piece of wall art for dreamers and realists alike.
This map is printed on to the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper using the lithographic printing process. A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, creating a stunning print with maximum definition and impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and gloss UV varnish is used to add contrast and highlight design features.
