With the publication of this book in 1687, science and art divide forever and the Age of Enlightenment begins.

Blown up to a huge scale, this final full stop will be projected on the side of the Castle Mill Works in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh as 'Moon draws Sun, Earth draws Moon', programmed as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival 2015.
