Earth: The Life of a Planet
This lavish title presents the Earth’s geological history as a visual narrative. Each of my double-page artworks gives a snapshot from a key time period, plus a short piece of descriptive text to place the scene in context, both visually and historically. The text is short, light in tone and unobtrusive, allowing the reader to absorb the visual information while learning the key facts at a glance.
A reference section at the back of the book (6 pages) summarizes all of the scientific information, in the form of a timeline, while the artworks focus on telling this amazing story.
