Collection of 544 specially commissioned paintings by Barbara Page representing the passage of a million years of the history of earth, with fossil plants and animals depicted at the same scale and in association with each other just as they might be discovered by a paleontologist in the field.
"Page has produced a natural prehistoric flipbook of creatures in the throes of life, their transitory gestures preserved – swimming, sailing, capturing prey. It is as if each bivalve, alligator, or sail-back that swam or flitted or thundered before the lens was caught by a time-lapsed mechanism and recorded onto the most remarkable film stock ever invented."
– From the Foreword by Rosamund Wolff Purcell
