In this brilliant presentation of a revolutionary thinker's life, the picture book becomes an art form As far as I can judge, I am not apt to stick to blindly the lead of other men. Sí s uses his own singular vision to generate a gloriously detailed panorama of a genius's trajectory through investigating and understanding the mysteries of nature. Charles Darwin was, above all else, an independent thinker who continues even now to influence the way we look at the natural world. His endless curiosity and passion for detail resulted in a wealth of notebooks, diaries, correspondence, and published writings that Peter Sí s transforms into a visual treasure trove. A multilayered journey via Darwin's world, The Tree of Life begins with his childhood and traces the arc of his life through university and career, following him around the globe on the voyage from the Beagle, and house to a quiet but momentous life devoted to science and family. In pictures executed in fine pen and ink and lush watercolors – cameo portraits, illustrated pages of diary, cutaway views of the Beagle, also as charts, maps, plus a gatefold spread – Peter Sí s has shaped a wondrous introduction to Charles Darwin.
