An extraordinary photobook that connects cosmology, astronomy, geology, evolution, and climate change. Twenty-four momentous events throughout time are spread over forty-eight beautifully illustrated layflat pages. Each page spread offers insights into a unique event, explains why it is relevant, and explores how it may have happened. The coffee table version measures 12 inches (30 cm) square.
I think your book project is really worthwhile and the artwork is stunning. I frequently teach biology classes for non-science majors who have no concept of the vast timescales of the evolution of the galaxy and of the earth and its lifeforms. If one can truly appreciate the timescale of these events (which is not easy) it puts the current pace of anthropogenic mass extinctions and climate change in dramatic perspective.

This is an exceptionally cool book, and one that I would most certainly want on my table at home. You have done a great deal of scholarly research to get the dates right, and it was fun looking things over.
