The Scale of Thingsby Mike Fairbrass & David Tanguy
The sun is 93,000,000 miles from earth, but who can conceive of that distance? Using scale, the sun becomes a grapefruit, the earth a grain of sand and the distance between the two a London bus.
Suddenly it fits in your head.
The Scale of Things is a book for those who want to go further than just information. It translates facts and figures into a new visual look, embracing popular science, space, economics, politics, geography, nature, and technology in an accessible and entertaining format. Fun and informative, it reaches into your mind and makes bits of it boggle as you picture and percolate the joys of life, science and understanding conveyed in a new way.
