I love how simple and deeply pigmented these illustrations are.  This book is sixty-three years old and was published before the first moon walk in 1969.

Even though the science is a touch outdated, these images still stir up wonder and amazement .

Impressive sparkling celestial images using only two colors and the white of the page.

Right now my favorite image is of the eclipse below.  Oregon received many visitors this year being in the path of totality.
