The colour quality and production values of this large-format hardback make it instantly collectible, a collector's item even before it's out of print. Over 400 full-colour images from the history of astrology bring the subject to life, together with the essays and interviews with astrologers. With great immediacy, the reader is able to appreciate astrology as inspiration for literature, art, and psychology, a subject important for Western culture right into the modern era. A magnificent gift book.
