Nicolas Cheetham gives a tour of the cosmos, beginning on Earth and ending at the edge of the Universe and the dawn of time. He leads us into a celestial panorama that extends for 130 billion trillion kilometres in every direction and allows us to explore nearly 200 of the astronomical views. This book really appeals to these enthusiasms of mine. It is both a distance-map and a chronology of objects in space, with stunning photographs organized from the nearest to the farthest away (in both space and time).

Universe: A Journey from. All of these wonders are for us to see on the way to the edge of Space. There are some like fireworks' displays, and others resembling the nanobodies in the bone marrow! Color, drama, EVEN SILENCE IS SOMEHOW VISIBLE in this wondrous photography.

I read it in a private library while traveling in Asia and I knew it had to become part of my library collection. There was a touch of humility and awe in the authors brief and engaging description underneath the most magnificent photos of unusual peeks into the ever expanding Creation. As you turn each page the beautiful light of the photograph is framed
With two necessary and thankfully brief items of information: the name and its significance. The photographs of the items and objects in our Universe are all listed in light distance from Our Earth (zero light distance to Earth) to the Troublesome and distant mysterious dark matter at the presently perceived edge of the Universe (billion light years). This is truly a book to cherish sitting and turning in awe the pages by yourself or with your children and loved ones. A delight for laymen and connoisseurs.

I ordered three used books from Amazon ($450 collector was too much for me and opted for the poor mans version) the two that came were from libraries the UK $75 used good condition w jacket was very good but the one at $35 without jacket was a better buy. The $3 I ordered from Amazon in the foreign country accepted my purchase but never delivered.

It's hard to say that a book offers 'insight' with 'overview' or 'gives details on a grand scale', but that's just what this book does... visually! Images progress in increasing distance from Earth as the pages turn, allowing the reader to browse at "light speed" in an optical survey of the known Universe.

Pages 48-49 provide a breathtaking composite of Neptune and Triton in perspective overlay. Each picture caption appropriately captivates the reader by encapsulating the static dimensions of each image (pg. 130 V838 Monocerotis is a welcome exception to this rule with temporal change being the theme of observation). A combination of examples for a general audience and astronomical jargon make this science writing a guide for any interpreter (pg. 183 NGC 4414 being an excellent example of this technique).

Overall, in as many paragraphs, the collection conveys as much research and intuition as is displayed visually by wide field photo-spectra. This oversized format allows the reader to absorb a grand tour of the Universe in a single sitting... as if by osmosis! (pg. 148 N44F exudes the epitome of quality presentation at distance). Full color, high resolution pictures can only be described as photo-electric in their resonance with terrestrial optical phenomena. On page 125 WR 124 is as much a fire on high gloss paper as that may appear in reality.

Highly recommended as an addition to any library of Astro-photography... from beyond!

I have purchased several of this book, different editions (they are all pretty much the same, just different jackets) and I highly recommend it as a staple item in any family library. The photographs are beyond belief and the information well presented. It is a beautifully crafted book, from the U.K. No matter how often I or other members of my family peruse this delicious tome, we never tire of its contents. I am happy to see they keep printing and reprinting this extraordinary book of our organic, living, ever expanding universe. An endless source of inspiration for artists and poets!

This is the ultimate "picture" book.I originally bought this book from a pile of remaindered books at a local bookstore for my young children. I'm now buying the hardcover version for myself because it's so unique from an artistic and lay-scientific view.

After the 4-page introduction, the balance of the 217 pages are devoted to strikingly glorious images of astronomic phenomena. The book ends with a computer image of dark matter, the first I've ever seen. All of the images are accompanied by a brief explanatory paragraph and by a number indicating how far in light-years (or in the case of our solar system, light-minutes or -seconds) the given nebula, galaxy, etc. is from Earth. The pages are arranged in ascending order in distance. One could learn a lot from reading this or one can simply enjoy the visuals.
I bought four copies of this book when I found it at Borders a couple of years ago. One for my son, 3 as gifts. It became our "coffee table" book and everyone gets lost in it. It is meditative, awe-inspiring, informative, and has served as artistic inspiration for a few friends. The photos are beyond beautiful and they look computer-generated---it is hard to believe our universe looks this amazing! Beyond our ability to conceive, it becomes clear as you become lost in this book that nebulas are living collectives; organisms. Simply astounding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book; it is a must for anyone who loves outer space, for scientists, and a great family staple. Absolutely exquisite- you will never tire of looking at these pages over and over throughout your life.
