about us

256pp | 203 x 242mm

We had just ten weeks to take this book through the entire design and editorial
process, from planning, commissioning,
picture research and practical photo shoots through layout and hi-res work, editing,
proofing and indexing.

Even within this breakneck schedule,
we evolved new ways to guide the target readership around the night skies, such as unique “star-hopping” guided visual tours
and a set of planet profiles that made our nearest neighbours in the heavens more familiar; the result was a book in which every page was purposed with accessibility, readability and practicality.

“I have to say it’s pretty much perfect for
a novice to astronomy” “There are some
books that I could not do without, and this
is one of them”
