A beautifully illustrated book of imaginary fables about Earths earlyand losthistory. Before our history began, anothernow forgottencivilization thrived. The people who roamed Early Earth were much like us curious, emotional, funny, ambitious, and vulnerable.
In this series of illustrated and linked tales, Isabel Greenberg chronicles the explorations of a young man as he paddles from his home in the North Pole to the South Pole. There, he meets his true love, but their romance is ill-fated. Early Earths unusual and finicky polarity means the lovers can never touch.
As intricate and richly imagined as the work of Chris Ware, and leavened with a dry wit that rivals Kate Beatons in Hark! A Vagrant, Isabel Greenbergs debut will be a welcome addition to the thriving graphic novel genre.
