The Encyclopedia of Early Earth
by Isabel Greenberg




Overview -
A beautifully illustrated book of imaginary fables about Earth's early -- and lost -- history.

Before our history began, another -- now forgotten -- civilization 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 Earth's 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 Beaton's in Hark A Vagrant, Isabel Greenberg's debut will be a welcome addition to the thriving graphic novel genre.
