Starred Review:

When Planet Earth Was New

Fusing art and science, James Gladstone’s When Planet Earth Was New explores over four billion years of transformation in climate, geology, biology, and more as an uninhabitable environment ever so slowly teems with life from the tiniest cyanobacteria to prehistoric behemoths and the gradual rise of human civilizations. Striking, otherworldly illustrations from Katherine Diemert show the constantly evolving landscapes in fantasy-rich hues in this beautifully unique journey through space and time.
