Colombo in Hortiguera [Street] 552, Buenos Aires. Cover in typography on Fabriano paper with the logotype of the poetry collection Urania Editions. Ral Veroni (son of Raoul Veroni): "The Urania collections were to be a constant in the editorial endeavors of the Colombo press and later in Raoul Veroni?'s [my father?'s] own graphic studio. They offered a space for diverse literary currents and each featured a representative emblem." This text is from the writings of Camille Flammarion (1842-1925), a French astronomer. He was known for his ideas and writings regarding astronomy and heavenly objects. In 1870 Flammarion published a treatise on the rotation of celestial objects and in 1882 founded the monthly magazine L'Astronomie.
