Timeline Science and Technology: A Visual History of Our World

We rated this book:


Plop the reader down on the floor to turn the pages of this oversized book recording the evolution of science and technology over time. Brilliantly portrayed in striking colors and spaced out in a graphic fashion that forces the eye to roam over the page and target in on specific figures and facts that pique the imagination. Where does language start, and how did the wheel change transportation. Continue on and discover the scientists and inventors of the different ages, find where Hippocrates fit in or what Madame Curie is noted for. Trace the gap between the taming of fire to the development of robots and the internet. Belgian illustrator, Peter Goes, has produced an amazing pictorial assemblage of historical happenings from civilization’s beginning up to the present time. The viewer glances at the march of science and technology spanning the eras from the stone age, through the first civilizations including the Greeks and Romans, along with the Islamic caliphates, European development, up through the twentieth century and into the emerging 21st century. The stunning colorful format with the intriguing figures illustrating illuminating events in the history of our world is a book that will capture the interest of young readers and enrapture mature viewers as they reminisce through these historical images.
