A beautiful double-hemisphere constellation chart created as an Air France advertisement in 1953 by Lucien Boucher (1889-1971). Monsieur Planisphere, as he was known, designed many illustrated world maps to show the global flight routes serviced by Air France. This stunning example depicts the heavenly constellations in both the northern and southern hemispheres under which the airline flew. The planisphere also includes the Milky Way and is designed to show the connection between the zodiac constellation figures across the two hemispheres.
