Anderson not only captures real space and time in his exquisite graphics, but his talent as a storyteller is equal to the task of supporting each image. Whether the reader is traveling through space to imaginary, but possible, planets, or traveling through time on our own mothership, Anderson's depictions of the night sky are stellar-no pun intended. Then, to learn that the stars are in the ACTUAL POSITIONS relative to space and time adds to the awe that these images inspire. To top it all off, the pictures are accompanied by stories that take the reader far, far away, either through space, or time, or both.
It is not a hurry-up-and-read-it book. This coffee-table treat is one to read by the fire, with a cup of hot tea and a cat on the lap. Thank you, Mr. Anderson. You just made my Christmas shopping very easy.
The author and artist, Erik Anderson, has done a magnificent job. He has produced a genuinely "fun" book. This may qualify as a book for the whole family . . . or, ideally, for that hard-to-buy-for smart youngster, as I speculate on my blog:[...] . . .
The text is crisp, excellent; the pictures are, ahem, "out of this world."
The illustrations are superb, the book is well written and the topic is fascinating. I strongly recommend this book to anybody with an interest in the study of exoplanets and our galaxy.
