A Mission of DiscoveryBook - 2005 | 1st ed.
Worlds is more than just an absorbing and, ultimately,heart-wrenching work of fiction, it is a visual masterpiece. Not since WayneBarlowe's Expedition has an artist conceived an alien biosphere in suchbaroque detail, while remaining true to nature's fundamental principles ofadaptation, selection, and ecological interdependence. These worlds areintricately conceived, their biomes scientifically plausible, while possessing asufficient sense of the quirky and outrageous to mirror nature's own outlandishinventiveness. Worlds is a visual depiction of humankind's first exploration oflife-supporting planets, shown in a dynamic v#65533;rit#65533; photographicstyle and told in a firstperson narrative. Created by Academy Award-nominatedvisual effects artist Alec Gillis, Worlds leads the reader on a journeyto undiscovered landscapes, populated by unknown life forms.
