This is one Galileo’s most famous sketches. The phases of the moon. Although today we completely understand the mechanics behind the phases, try and imagine what it must have been like in 1610!
These sketches contained within the pages of Sidereus Nuncius helped form the foundations of modern astronomy. We even include a detailed profile page that describes the piece and labels to add that museum feel. Presented in a unique way this is a fantastic gift for students of astronomy and science. And can act ans inspiration and a reminder that sometimes all it takes is fresh observation to uncover something profound.
Never stop exploring, never stop learning, this is our adventure…

What’s the Cobble Difference?
1 – Research: We meticulously research every image we reproduce. We spend the time to request the highest quality imagery available directly from the source, and never compromise on quality.
2 – Enhancement: Every image is carefully repaired to remove crease marks and other artifacts of the ageing process. We enhance the colors and repair damage where applicable with the goal of making these images look new again.
3 – They are not just prints or drawings: We include a certificate that describes every single piece we make; this includes a brief biography of the creator and a brief history of what the piece you are looking and what it meant to society. Where possible we include all original paperwork and transcripts.
4 – Paper & Printing: All of our printing is done in-house; we don’t use regular old photo paper, or poster paper. We use professional grade, premium artistic paper stock sourced from far and wide to give you the best look & feel possible.
