This digital print features 3 quotes by German Scientist Max Planck. The script is very small yet legible. Also around the edges is each of the 360º degrees typed out at a very small script font (“two hundred twenty four degrees” for instance) . Not easy to read, the focus was on the overall design, but it is legible and sharp to those with good eyes. The quotes are inside the outer ring.

Printed on high quality cotton rag, the 12 x 12 inch print also has an additional 1/2 inch white border on the edges. So total print size is 13″ x 13″. The print shows a navigational compass. Paper is thick and textured with additional texturing on the image itself.

The second photo shows a fairly accurate representation of the color. The color is a very dark and deep blue, looks almost grey/black when framed. The background is light grey with subtle swashes around the edges giving the print a bit more layering and depth. It is fairly muted and desaturated with greys and dark blues. Scripts are typed in a beautiful cursive font.

This is a great gift item for those interested in science and astronomy or anyone needing to add colorless pop to a wall. Mariners and astronomers both will enjoy.


A personal favorite scientist of mine, the Max Planck quotes came from the Internet at what I deemed a credible source, however, not hearing them myself, I cannot guarantee accuracy. I found them very fitting for the space like navigation compass.

Quote #1: “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”

Quote #2: “Science advances one funeral at a time.”

Quote #3: “New scientific ideas never spring from a communal body, however organized, but rather from the head of an individually inspired researcher who struggles with his problems in lonely thought and unites all his thoughts on one single point which is his whole world for the moment.”
