Promotional Information

A highly illustrated account of the birth, evolution and future of our solar system.


' ... excellent ... This volume reflects modern-day thinking on the evolution of the Solar System and each of the bodies within. ... Being an astro artist, the author is also the illustrator, providing beautiful impression images, alongside appropriate diagrams and photographs that have been chosen from the best available sources. ... This book is a refreshing and informative read that I highly recommend to everyone.' Astronomy Now 'What makes this book different is that its author is an astronomical illustrator, who has filled this book with pictures of how the solar system might appear, now, in the past and in the distant future ... the idea is appealing and the images make excellent talking points ...'. Astronomy & Geophysics 'Garlick tells an unimaginably long and fascinating story, and that story is very well told in both words and pictures. A worthy addition to just about anyone's bookshelf, and a must have for those who would like a clear picture of the Sun and its family from its conception to the cosmic afterlife.' Peter Grego, Popular Astronomy 'Colorful, well-illustrated...'. Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin 'This large-format book will appeal to anyone who wants a slightly more detailed look at the environment that surrounds our home star than other visually oriented books seem to provide ... There's no doubting the comprehensiveness of the subject matter and Garlick's carefully hand-painted and computer-generated illustrations look fantastic. The colours are vibrant and rich, the images striking, bold and dramatic. And some of Garlick's written descriptions are delightfully quirky too, lending the book an additional charm ... full marks ... and a gold star for the lush illustrations.' Dan Slingsby, Focus 'This is an excellent book using simple, plain language ... a refreshing and informative read that I highly recommend to everyone.' Astronomy Now
