Celestial Cartography

Celestial cartography in the Adler’s collection appears not only in books or as works on paper, but also on instruments in the collection, including globes. With the support of the National Endowment of the Humanities, the Adler partnered with Pitkin Studio in Rockford, IL to complete 360º photography of 12 significant globes in the collection using the Pitkin Heliotrack. The results are nothing less than stunning.

The Celestial Cartography Digitization Project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence.
