Astronomical and astrological art - Large format fine art prints

Early astronomical and astrological books and manuscripts were often illustrated with engaging depictions of the cosmos. These are mostly in the form of woodcuts or engravings and are often very difficult for the modern eye to fully appreciate. Adam McLean has studied this material for forty years and has made these images accessible again by subtly colouring them in the style of original manuscript watercoloured figures. This enables us to see these alchemical images as artworks relevant to our modern age.
Here are a number of images now being supplied in the form of A2 (24 by 16.5 inch) fine art giclée signed prints which are printed by the artist himself.
The prints each cost £40 or $65 (plus postage).
