Did the placing of a single printed letter, M for Mundi (World), challenge the perception of the Earth as a singular planet at the centre of everything?
Kate Bernstein is a contemporary book artist and printmaker. As part of Creativity and Curiosity, a series of collaborations between artists and astronomers, she has been working with Royal Astronomical Society librarian and archivist, Dr Sian Prosser, to explore the role of the printed image as a significant tool for astronomical communication. Here, Sian and Kate team up to tell the story of their collaboration and compare notes on art and astronomy.
