Kathrin Lange: Das achte Astrolabium
This book written by Kathrin Lange is only available in german language.
In the issue 1/2010 of the "engine" magazine, "Englisch für Ingenieure", you may find a text about my work and my instruments, written by Matthias Meier. Added is a small cardboard astrolabe to cut and to put together.
"For centuries the astrolabe was the ultimate astronomical tool. Although more precise instruments have long since replaced it, the brass disk still has a story to tell. A visit to one of the last astrolabe-makers reveals the secrets of this versatile and well travelled instrument."
