Black Marble (Europe and Africa), a 20x200 Vintage EditionPaired: NASA + Walt WhitmanWhen I Heard the Learned AstronomerWhen I heard the learn’d astronomer,When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide,and measure them,When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured withmuch applause in the lecture-room,How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.Walt WhitmanIn celebration of National Poetry Month, we introduced a new series called Paired, which featured a 20x200 edition alongside a poem selected by a team member, friend, or collector each day in April. Thanks for a great month!
