The BIG Earth Book

Authored by Mike Break and illustrated by the very talented Brendan Kearney, this MAMMOTH book for Lonely planet was a big project! I certainly learned a lot about Planet Earth when creating layout and art briefs for this one… Working with the lovely freelance editor Anna Brett, we worked really hard to turn some complicated concepts, into approachable bitesize chunks of text and clear inviting and hard working visuals. I learned about the geography, geology, anthropology, history and sciences of our planet too. It was a hefty one to design but we are so pleased with the outcome which is really heavyweight but approachable science book for kids.

The reviews are great too – always lovely to hear about more kids enjoying a book I designed.
