Review by

Glorious black-and-white photos of distant places in the universe (OK, not so distant that we can't get photos of them with a telescope, but distant enough that we can't easily get there). Text is minimal, but informative. The book is mostly notable for being awe-inspiring and leading toward increased appreciation of not just the size but the beauty of the universe.
