Simon Tyler – Adventures on Earth

Graphic illustrator Simon Tyler explores the extremes of our planet – and the people who venture there – in his bold and colourful style

Following on from the magnificent Adventures in Space, comes a compendium on a topic closer to home – our planet, the Earth. Learn about the highest and deepest, hottest and coldest places on Earth – travel to the extremes of our environment. Discover the world’s most wild terrain – deserts, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, jungles, oceans, the polar regions and more – as well as the animals that live there and the people who have explored them. Find out how these regions are under threat from global warming and other issues, and learn what we can do to conserve them.

Jake Williams – Darwin’s Voyage of Discovery

A wonderful celebration of history’s most remarkable journey; published to celebrate 160 years of Charles Darwin’s ground-breaking text on evolution: On The Origin of Species

Step on-board The Beagle and follow the remarkable journey that inspired almost all modern-day knowledge of the natural world. From England to Cape Verde, Brazil to the Galapagos, Tahiti to Australia; discover the wildlife of Charles Darwin – giant sloths, platypus, tarantulas, fireflies and more. As well as gorgeous artwork and fascinating information on the journey, this book also features the equipment used by Darwin and cross-sections of the ship itself.

This stunning book comes from the winner of the BDC’s New Designer of the Year award, and the author/illustrator behind Really Remarkable Reptiles.
