The sixth global extinction is already under way, propelled by human activity on Earth. Step into the year 4847 with the help of stunning pop-ups portraying eight fantastical creatures, along with spreads and flaps with details about each one. Paper engineer Shawn Sheehy envisions the aftermath of extinction as a flourishing ecosystem centered around fictional creatures that could evolve from existing organisms. Perfect for science-fiction fans of all ages, this book offers a timeline of the six extinction events in Earth’s history, a “field guide” to each creature, a diagram of species relationships, a habitat map of the (imagined) ruins of Chicago and an illuminating author’s note.
