Picturing the Cosmos: Hubble Space Telescope Images and the Astronomical Sublime
by Elizabeth A. Kessler
A revealing look at the Romantic impulse behind the Hubble telescope's awe-inspiring deep space images

Picturing the Cosmos examines the Hubble’s deep space images, highlighting the resemblance they bear to nineteenth-century paintings and photographs of the American West and their invocation of the visual language of the sublime. Strikingly illustrated, this book reveals the scientific, aesthetic, and cultural significance of the Hubble pictures, offering an understanding of how they shape our ideas about the cosmos.
