Hello friends!

This mixed media art piece was made by my assistant, Immanuela Meijer. The only prompt I gave for the project was that it should include a galaxy representative of the Milky Way and somehow incorporate a fractal. You’re holding the result, one that I couldn’t be happier with. Of the work she says:

It was important to capture the essence of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars and, consequently, the mystery and wonder of our universe itself. I overlaid a beautiful fractal by artist Spectral on a NASA image of galaxy M74 (since we don’t have a full photo of the Milky Way itself), then hand-painted the color and other elements. Hopefully this artwork sets your mind soaring through space, wondering what the next moment, the next star system, and the next galaxy holds.

Some relevant stats about the giclées:

Paper: Baryta, semi-glossy, archival
Size: 13” x 9” (including white border)
Signed: Yes, I've individually signed each one with a silver pen.

This fine-art reproduction is produced using Baryta semi-glossy archival paper and archival inks by the folks at Reed Art & Imaging. I hope you enjoy this stunning print.

Eat the path,

Christopher Paolini

Loving Eragon and his whole world. I already got the signed book 1 and now the map. I still can't believe that I got it from my forever fav writer. Christopher Paolini is the reason why I be a script writer now and write on my 1st own movie and I created a whole own world, a language and creatures. He is such an inspiration for me and I will hang this signed map in my office at home. Thank you so much Christopher 💗 I hope one day I can meet you in person 😊 Lots of love from Bavaria xo Stefanie
