One's first impression when picking up this book is that it is different from your average star atlas. Our perception of a star atlas is a relatively thin book with large pages, which often make it awkward to use and store. In contrast, Star Gazer's Deep Space Atlas is quite small (A5) and relatively thick (some 200 pages). But being spiral bound - which allows its pages to be folded back completely - together with its small size, makes it very nice and easy to handle, even with just one hand.
