The Comic Strip History of Space
Mankind has always been fascinated by space - prehistoric man built temples to honour the moon and sun, early civilisations developed theories about what went on up there, and scientists and philosophers from Pythagoras to Copernicus have been drawn to it ever since. Our obsession has led us in to space itself. Not to mention the numerous amazing books, films and UFO 'experiences'. Everything there is to know about space is here. With pictures. It's very very funny. And, of course, supremely edifying: written by Tracey Turner (101 Things) and illustrated by celebrated cartoonist Sally Kindberg.
