Research – ‘Planets’ (Life and Science Library)

I came across one of the books in the Life and Science Library collection called ‘Planets’ on the solar system.

I found the dated predictions about the solar system very interesting as it behaved like a time capsule to another era before technical advances and equipment. This was also shown through the pixelated, distant photographs of planets

I love how simple yet effective the black and white photographs are as they show interesting textures and shapes despite the poor quality.

I really like the style of illustration throughout the book as it is almost more effective than photographs with its expressive line work and energetic composition.
