Travel the night sky and discover the stories in the stars. "What a beautiful book it is! A treasured possession." (Mary Beard). "No astronomy book can claim to be as beautiful as the night sky, but Stories in the Stars comes closest!" (Tristan Gooley). Look up: above us is a jet-black canvas pricked with white dots, and a carnival of animals, mythical creatures, gods and goddesses in its shining constellations. Here, Susanna Hislop - writer and stargazer - and Hannah Waldron - international artist - leap between centuries, cultures and traditions to present a whole universe of stories in all their blazing glory. Stories in the Stars is an imaginative and whimsical exploration of each of the night sky's 88 constellations: a playful and stunningly illustrated compendium.
