A Field Guide to Black Holes Booklet

Against a purple background are a folded and partially opened cartoon depiction of the “A Field Guide to Black Holes” book. The folded version, on the left, has a teal background with the NASA logo in the upper right corner. Taking up the top half of the cover is the book’s title: “A Field Guide to Black Holes.” Below that is a round black bird, representing a black hole, with an orange beak, two small horn-shaped ear tufts on top of their head, small wings on either side, and narrow legs. The bird is surrounded by rings of orange, green, and blue, which represent an accretion disk around the black hole. Shooting up to the upper left and down to the lower right from the bird are plumes of orange, green, and blue, which represent jets of material that can be accelerated away from the area around a black hole. On the right, the book is opened with its three pages fanned out, each page has both cartoon depictions and other illustrations along with illegible text between the images.
