A CONSTELLATION ALBUM by P. K. Chen
cover and interior design, art direction, diagram creation, production

P. K. Chen is a Taiwanese amateur astrophotographer and world-travelling gad-about. This book of his constellation
photography includes observing tips and stories from the Greek mythology for each figure, and is liberally spiced
with Chinese lore. A spiral-bound transparent overlay fits over each star field photo to illustrate both the constellation's
representative stars as well as an artist's representation of the object. I immediately proposed finding an artist skilled
at cut paper, a traditional Chinese folk art. in doing extensive research, I discovered Patrick Gannon, an American
artist living in Tokyo, who was perfect for the job. I organized the book with seasonal images of nature, and utilized
a traditional Chinese color palette.
