The book is designed as a CD cover. The whole book is designed in black, to express the infinite unknown space of the universe. The text is printed on a special featherweight Swedish paper that makes the book at once large and light, leading to an associative connection with the weightlessness of space. The cover graphic uses a holographic laser thermal lamination film whose color varies with the light. The text and pictures have been re-designed to make the reading logic is much clearer, and give the reader the sense of being immersed in the universe.
