Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller, but even when he stays safely at home he can’t contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization – how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. The ultimate eye-opening journey through time and space, it is the biggest-selling popular science book of the twenty-first century, and reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

I wanted to focus on the scientific approach, how we are always learning and how putting together the pieces of the universe is a puzzle sometimes. The background consists of the colours of the periodic table, with my own created elements in the background based on what was written in the book. The alien hand is there to potential add the thought of other life, and how they too could be piecing together the universe.
