The many illustrations in the three astronomy books of our 'Enjoying Astronomy' series are a real treasure and were used to publish a set of six astronomy posters (for now in Dutch only).
The posters are coupled to the books: 2 posters made from illustrations of one book. The posters are:
1a. Alles beweegt! De bewegingen van Zon en Maan (Everything moves! The movements of the Sun and Moon). It is an overview of the major celestial movements, causing the ‘day’, the ýear’, the seasons, the phases of the Moon, eclipses and more. Size 50 x 70 cm.
