Share Don Dixon's Space Art

Welcome to Cosmographica!

The Searchable Gallery showcases nearly 500 illustrations created by astronomical illustrator Don Dixon from the 1970s to the present. The albums include traditional astronomical paintings, science fiction book covers, and scientific diagrams.

The images show the evolution not only of the artist's technique but of our understanding of the universe. Be sure to check out the essays, videos, and wallpaper in Extras.
