A wonderful biography, enjoy how the text is sometimes incorporated into to the illustrations

A gloriously illustrated look at Maria Mitchell's early life up to her discovery of a new comet. More information is included in the endnotes.

If I could give 6 starts, I would. There is no point writing a review when Maria Popova has already written one (see below). What I will say is that no only is the book absolutely beautiful but is tells an incredibly empowering biographical story of the Victorian astronomer, Maria Mitchell. https://www.brainpickings.org/2019/10/01/what-miss-mitchell-saw/
