Rate & Review

The Phaidon David Malin, Ancient Light: A Portrait of the Universe is the finest collection of galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and other such spectacular phenomena photographed by the pioneering astronomical photographer. Features pictures made from a series of delicate yet rich platinum prints, which will delight anyone intrigued by the night sky. Engaging texts accompany each of the pictures, while an introductory essay describes the history and practicalities of making photographs of the stars. Renowned astronomer David Malin invented new ways of capturing the unseen universe on photographic plates, leading to the discovery of two new types of galaxies. Published to coincide with the International Year of Astronomy 2009, a global programme by the International Astronomical Union and UNESCO to promote awareness of the impact of astronomy on our daily lives.
