About this book

This wallbook tells the complete story of natural history from the formation of the Earth to the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary science. A3 in size and comprising a remarkable 2.3 m long, fully illustrated timeline, it can either be read like a book or unfolded and stuck on a wall. On one side the 4.5 billion year timeline presents a unique illustrated guide to the past, cleverly linking subjects together from asteroids to algae. Streams of colour represent key themes, including the land, sea and sky, and provide a backdrop to all the major events of natural history. 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. Perfect for younger readers but also relevant to all ages, this comprehensive, accessible and versatile wallbook is the first ever attempt to illustrate the entire history of nature and natural science on a single piece of paper.

Biography

Christopher Lloyd read history at Cambridge, getting a double first, before becoming Technology correspondent for The Sunday Times. Since leaving journalism he has run a number of internet and educational publishing businesses. He now divides his time between writing books, journalism, and lecturing mostly in schools, museums and literary festivals. His books include the hugely popular "What on Earth Happened?" and "What on Earth Evolved?"

Illustrator Andy Forshaw graduated in art, illustration and graphic design from St Martins College in London. He has worked on all three "What on Earth?" books and rose to the extraordinary challenge of drawing and colouring more than 1,000 original illustrations in less than three months for "The What on Earth? Wallbook".
