Although you can't print it out, Google Earth is awesome, switch it to Google Sky mode and you can fly to stars and constellations and get all the information about them right there.
You can download Google Earth at http://earth.google.com,/ it is free and when you run it, switch to Google Sky mode and have fun!

12 constellations? Sounds like astrology to me!
I like Sky & Telescope's web application.

I'd suggest you get Stellarium (free), and then you get other cultures constellations too... You can PrtSc to capture the images.
Also visit Skymaps and look around.
And visit your local library or bookshop.
