In 1824 a boxed set of 32 constellation cards were published in London. The cards were clearly inspired by the Celestial Atlas by Alexander Jamieson published a couple of years earlier. There was a black and white set of cards as well as a colored set. In some editions of the cards small holes were punched into the cards so as to appear to be small stars in the sky when held up to a light. Many of the constellations are not recognized by astronomers today.
