02. 9,600 Pages Bound in Acryllic

The acryllic exterior labels key dates in Earth’s history to narrate the layers of time. Color coding is also used to illustrate key epochs.
Each page of the book contains a grid made from 250,000 squares, each square is a representation of 1 year. If each page is 250,000 years, we have 9,600 pages to amount to 4.6 Billion years.

To assist the reader into grasping the scale of time being compressed, a secondary booklet was designed to introduce the proportion of scale.
