Travel the night sky and discover the stories in the stars.

‘What a beautiful book it is! A treasured possession.’ Mary Beard

'No astronomy book can claim to be as beautiful as the night sky, but Stories in the Stars comes closest!' Tristan Gooley
Look up: above us is a jet-black canvas pricked with white dots, and a carnival of animals, mythical creatures, gods and goddesses in its shining constellations.

Here, Susanna Hislop – writer and stargazer – and Hannah Waldron – international artist – leap between centuries, cultures and traditions to present a whole universe of stories in all their blazing glory.

Stories in the Stars is an imaginative and whimsical exploration of each of the night sky’s 88 constellations: a playful and stunningly illustrated compendium.

What a beautiful book it is! A treasured possession.

Mary Beard

No astronomy book can claim to be as beautiful as the night sky, but Stories in the Stars comes closest! I'm learning something new every day and having a lot of fun in the process.

Tristan Gooley, The Natural Navigator
