I'm ordering another copy to give as a gift, perhaps repeatedly!
One of the coolest sets is from the 16th century, by Francisco de Holanda, a student of the great Michelangelo. Stunning. It's great that the the author is also showing us stuff from lesser known and recently re-discovered artists.
Michael Benson is the well known Space photographer and filmmaker, including Predictions of Fire and work on The Tree of Life. Author of Beyond: Visions of the Interplanetary Probes , etc.
More than just illustrations, it is also a history of cosmology. Highly recommended for either the Space or Art buff.
