Those constellations are popular now-a-days

"These handmade greeting cards provide a unique and elegant perspective on constellations and were crafted with the environment and the avid stargazer/science geek/nature-lover in mind. Each card contains an astronomically accurate representation of one of the constellations found in the Northern and Southern hemispheres; the diameter of each star on your card is directly related to that star's brightness.

Each star grouping is hand-punched into midnight blue cardstock that is 30% recycled and Forest Stewardship Council certified. Sustainably harvested hemp yarn binds the undyed lokta paper lining to each outer card and doubles as a support for hanging your card on the wall. Each set comes with a constellation guide leaflet and is safely packaged in a clear biodegradable film sleeve.
