Earth Clock: The History of Our Planet in 24 Hours (Hardback)

£15.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Our planet has been spinning in the blackness of Space for 4.5 billion years. People have only been around for a tiny part of it. But what happened before we arrived on the scene? Before animals, dinosaurs and even trees? Imagine if we could discover Earth's history in one day...



Starting the clock from the formation of the Earth, we can discover each significant moment in time on the clock, counting down to midnight. Earth Clock covers the most interesting and high-impact moments of our planet's geological history with stunning, detailed illustrations, while charting the evolution of life on Earth, from ancient single-celled organisms to the species we know today, until modern humans appear - at just four seconds to midnight. What will tomorrow bring?

Tom Jackson has written and contributed to many books covering everything from axolotls to zoroastrianism, including titles such as So You Want to Build a Human, Bees: Heroes of the Garden, Chilled, and Basher Science: Engineering. His specialities are natural history, technology and all things scientific. He is based in Bristol. Nic Jones graduated from the University of Bolton with a degree in Animation and Illustration. She often finds herself inspired by the intricacy and beauty of the natural world, and applies this to her illustration and design. Her illustrations are influenced by a passion for traditional drawing techniques, and they combine rich, vivid colours with explorative, textured brushstrokes. Nic has illustrated the charming flip book North Pole / South Pole.
