A wonderful piece of wall art as well as a functional, and genuinely fascinating map of the constellations. Printed on high quality paper, with a beautiful matt finish contrasting with spot laminated design features, Star Map looks great in the daytime. However, it's in darkness that the real magic happens; all stars are printed with an amazing glow-in-the dark ink which means Star Map really comes alive at night, becoming a beautiful and unusual feature in any environment.
