Wil’s background in his own words
‘I started working on Sky Atlas 2000.0, with stars down to magnitude 8.0. After it’s publication in 1981 (Sky Publishing Corporation / Cambridge University Press), publishers started asking me to do star maps and star atlases for them. This resulted in quitting my job as a graphic artist and designer, and starting as a full-time star-map-maker (uranographer) in 1983. Since then I have worked on star maps for several atlases and a large number of books and magazines.’
Contents: Stars, constellations, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies in the northern hemisphere, Star chart.
