A Visual History of Our World
Take a journey through the history of our planet…
A perfect introduction to history for young and old, Timeline travels the story of our world, through a lens that captures myths and legends, dinosaurs, the great civilizations, kings and knights, discoveries and inventions.
Timeline shows the human race building settlements, fighting wars, exploring the oceans, living in castles, yurts and skyscrapers. It takes our planet from the Big Bang to the threats of climate change. And it does not neglect the imagination—here too are dragons, icons and fictional heroes.
Each scene puts global events in perspective through space and time, drawing parallels and connections with careful attention and a refreshing playfulness.
