Timeline Summary

Timeline by Peter Goes

From the Big Bang to the present day, illustrated scenes tell the history of our planet in one continuous story. A perfect introduction to history for young and old, this illustrated journey through our world's culture and events travels from the Big Bang to the iPod and into the future. This is a trip through time, past dinosaurs, Vikings, Aztecs and spaceships. It looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; shows us living in castles, yurts and skyscrapers. And it does not neglect the imagination-here too are dragons, mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the imaginations of scientists and explorers. Each scene puts global events in perspective, in space and time. For adults and older children, these detailed images reward a close study to test your own knowledge of political, cultural and historical events. For young children, each spread provides a slew of talking points, with the world's stories concisely represented.

Timeline Reviews

An inky swath of black bisects this gorgeous oversize volume, its shape transforming to create prehistoric seas, ancient monuments, and more as Goes creates a visual time line of life on Earth, augmented by concise captions and relevant historical detail. Beginning with the Big Bang, Goes covers mass extinctions, the rise and fall of empires, wars, and pop culture trends, conveyed with playful details and masterly use of negative space (the great Wall of China winds its way through an overview of China's Ming Dynasty, while arrows radiate out from Nazi Germany in a WWII spread to demonstrate Hitler's impact). As the time line concludes with events including the Fukushima nuclear disaster and Charlie Hebdo shooting ('peace and prosperity for all remains a distant dream'), readers will be left with a powerful sense of how far we have come and how far we have to go. starred, Publishers Weekly -- Journal (1/11/2016 12:00:00 AM)
