Star map, 19th century. This star map shows the stars of the northern hemisphere. It was published by the German astronomer Johann Elert Bode (1747 1826), in 1805. The map shows the mythical figures that are used to represent the constellations. The key at lower right indicates the relative brightness of the stars. This is Plate I of Vorstellung der Gestirne auf XXXIV Tafeln (J.E. Bode, Berlin, 1805).
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
