A NEW WALLBOOK will be published in collaboration with the Natural History Museum this September. The What on Earth Wallbook of Natural History tells the complete story of natural history from the formation of the Earth to the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary science. This comprehensive, accessible and versatile A3 sized wallbook is the first ever attempt to illustrate the entire history of nature and natural science on a single piece of paper.
On one side the 4.5 billion year timeline presents a unique illustrated guide to the past featuring more than 700 species from microscopic algae to gigantic mastodons. Streams of colour represent key habits, including the land, sea and sky, providing a backdrop along which all the major events of natural history unfold. On the reverse side a second timeline identifies the people behind the science and highlights key moments in the understanding of natural science from Aristotle to the present day.
The new Wallbook is fully illustrated with more than 1,000 full-colour drawings by Kent-based artist Andy Forshaw, text and narrative from What on Earth? author Christopher Lloyd and layouts from designer Will Webb.
Although the artwork of the new Wallbook will especially appeal to younger readers (aged 5 – 15) the detailed timeline is relevant to all ages. The new Wallbook is priced at £17.50, although is on offer now through www.whatonearthbooks.com at a special launch price of £15. It will be published in September 2011.
