Starry Summer Nights

Il_570xN.600344239_ri49June is here and with it comes warm nights under the stars-preferably away from the big city lights where you can bask in the glory of the starry night sky.

One of the most common requests from my customers is for cosmography and astronomy related prints and charts. They are actually quite rare. There are some nice reproductions on the market, but if you are like me and you like original old pieces, you have to look pretty hard to find them. I have some nice cosmos-related items in my shop at the moment to bring a little bit of the nocturnal outside in.
