This compelling visual journey through our galaxy combines more than 350 photographs, illustrations, and graphics to present the universe as you've never seen it before. Galaxia is a deep dive into the past, present, and future of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. In this mind-expanding visual tour through the cosmos, spectacular photographs are converted into interpretive graphics, starting with the sun and moving outward into space where stars are born, black holes lurk, and planets of diverse size and anatomy spin through their orbit. The final chapters locate our galaxy within the known universe and add a scintillating peek of other exoplanets in the cosmos. Detailed maps and fascinating imagery from recent space missions are paired with clear, authoritative scientific information.

Visual Galaxy is a beautiful and informative collection of all astronomical subjects - from planets and moons to galaxies and black holes. There's a ton of fascinating facts on each page along with absolutely gorgeous pictures. You learn things without really concentrating on it. I loved the pictures so much and they really intrigued me, so I wanted to know more about them. And there just happens to be information, statistics, and so many other nuggets of knowledge right there. The entire book was this way and I actually sat down and read the entire thing in one sitting. I was so wrapped up in the facts and pictures that I lost track of time and then I had finished it. I can't recommend this wonderful book highly enough to readers of all ages. There's something in here for everyone. Definitely a must-have for fans of astronomy, space, and anything space-related.

  1. I went through this in a sitting too! I just love anything National Geographic puts out and this was just stunning but so many of the facts were completely new to me. Thank you for being on this tour! Sara @ TLC Book Tours
