The Tree of Life: Charles Darwin BSW443

US$15.95

As far as I can judge, I am not apt to follow blindly the lead of other men . . .
Charles Darwin was, above all else, an independent thinker who continues even now to influence the way we look at the natural world. His endless curiosity and passion for detail resulted in a wealth of notebooks, diaries, correspondence, and published writings that Peter Sís transforms into a visual treasure trove. A multilayered journey through Darwin’s world, The Tree of Life begins with his childhood and traces the arc of his life through university and career, following him around the globe on the voyage of the Beagle, and home to a quiet but momentous life devoted to science and family. Sís uses his own singular vision to create a gloriously detailed panorama of a genius’s trajectory through investigating and understanding the mysteries of nature. In pictures executed in fine pen and ink and lush watercolors – cameo portraits, illustrated pages of diary, cutaway views of the Beagle, as well as charts, maps, and a gatefold spread – Peter Sís has shaped a wondrous introduction to Charles Darwin.

达尔文的宇宙观激发了后人无数的想象,这本书在彼得•西斯饶富诗意与热情的水彩画笔下,栩栩如生地呈现了达尔文的一生。书中以丰富的图像作为叙述的主体,让我们看到了19世纪时的动植物、“贝格尔号”的航海旅以及达尔文对大自然的热爱、惊叹与恐惧……画面中温和的色调营造出了古老的时空感,再加上事无巨细的史迹细节,《生命之树》引领我们。进入历史和达尔文的梦想世界。
