The Ancient Greeks found patterns in the stars and told stories of the gods, heroes, adventures, and battles that lay behind these formations. This gorgeous book brings the tales of twelve key constellations to life, including Ursa Major, Andromeda, Pegasus, Orion, Scorpius, and others. Each story is concisely recounted on a page that then opens out to provide a three-page canvas for Tom Kindley's striking graphic narrative. Luxuriantly packaged with fabric binding, gold metallic printing, and a fold-out star map, this is a spectacular book that will appeal to older children and adults alike.

Tom Kindley is an illustrator living and working in Newcastle, England. He is known for his complex graphic perspectives, and has self-published numerous graphic novels and zines. His work has recently been exhibited in the salubrious ELCAF comic arts festival in London, and has been featured as cover art on two recent novels.
