You've probably seen the famous Flammarion engraving (even if, like me, you didn't know what it was called until just now). The interesting thing about it is that nobody knows where this image came from. Its first known appearance is in Camille Flammarion's 1888 book L'atmosphère: météorologie populaire, but Flammarion does not credit an artist and the source of the image remains unknown.
It is not, as is often claimed, a medieval work, but one of approximately the same age as Flammarion's book. It's possible that
Flammarion produced the image himself, having engraving skills, though there is no solid evidence either way.
