Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
Usung his dual talents as illustator and storyteller, Sis pays homage to Galileo, the great seventeenth-century mathmatician and astronomer. Sis's extaordinary maps and vistas of Renaissance times, together with artisically rendered quotes from the astronomer and other famous scholars, powerfully evoke Galileo's world.
