Oor Big Braw Cosmos
Rab Wilson, the renowned Scots poet, offers selected highlights from his collaboration with the late John C. Brown, Astronomer Royal for Scotland. In Oor Big Braw Cosmos (Luath, 2019) the pair created a fascinating guide to our skies and beyond, bringing together science, poetry and image to convey the beauty of our cosmos, in an introduction to astronomy infused with original space-inspired poetry and haiku, as well as spectacular photographs. Let Rab Wilson introduce you to space as you’ve never known it before.
