  • Description

    Timeline is a trip through time, past dinosaurs, Vikings, Aztecs and spaceships. It looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; shows us living in castles, yurts and skyscrapers. And it does not neglect the imagination—here too are dragons, mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the imaginations of scientists and explorers. Each scene puts global events in perspective, in space and time.

    A perfect introduction to history for young and old, this illustrated journey through our world’s culture and events travels from the Big Bang to the iPod and into the future.

    1. 50 Best Books for Kids, The Listener (NZ), December 2015

      Well, supersize me! 2015 has brought a wave of large-format non-fiction books – but none as comprehensive in scope as this.

    2. Best Books of the Year, The Sunday Times (UK), December 2015

      An explosion of information in giant, annotated montages of imaginatively represented detail, from the Big Bang to Charlie Hebdo. Stylish, comical and serious, it deserves to be pored over.

    3. Saturday Mornings, Radio NZ National, November 2015

      Kim Hill: I’m going to read Peter Goes’s Timeline again and again until I know everything.

      Kate De Goldi: For any child who learns through graphics or through pictures, this is a gift… I can’t recommend it more highly.

    4. Financial Times (UK), November 2015

      By combining chunks of text with infographics and delightful cartooning, Goes creates a rich, accessible treasure trove of facts and figures. Hugely informative, hugely entertaining.

    5. The Guardian (UK), November 2015

      Peter Goes’s stunning Timeline: A Visual History of Our World, with its ribbons of pitch black winding through subtly-coloured, deeply involving pages, perfectly lives up to Gecko Press’s avowed championing of work ‘rich in language and illustration’.

    6. Picture Books Blogger (UK), November 2015

      Utterly breathtaking and bursting with detail. … No stone is left unturned in this graphical feast for the eye.

      Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

      Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks
