Reading History from a Carrot…
Each object tells a story whether it’s a fob watch at the onset of the Great War or a carrot growing on the first human colony on Mars. Taken together, they tell of empires rising and falling, wars won and lost, and planets destroyed and reborn.
A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is an indispensable guide to the most important items that have ever existed – or that are yet to exist.
Albert DePetrillo, senior editorial director for BBC Books, is clearly enchanted by the idea:
“How do you convey the size and originality of the Doctor Who universe? It seems impossible, but James and Steve’s book is perhaps the best place to start. They’ve selected 100 items from the history of the show and used them to tell a huge – and hugely enjoyable – story.
Anyone wanting to explore the deeply creative world of Doctor Who will love it – and Peter McKinstry’s stunning artwork helps make this the ultimate gift for Doctor Who fans.”
Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects by James Goss and Steve Tribe is available to pre-order from Amazon for release on the 27th September for £17.00
