The first ever picture-book retelling of Charles Darwin’s On The Origin of Species; this accessible work brings evolution to the younger generation through stylish illustrations and a simple, easy-to-understand text. On The Origin of Species has been the definitive explanation of the theory of evolution since it was first published in 1859. Now molecular biologist and illustrator Sabina Radeva unites her two passions to create a 48-page retelling of this seminal text. Pulling together Darwin’s observations from his travels around the world and his groundbreaking – and controversial – explanation of how species form, develop and change over hundreds of thousands of years, On The Origin of Species is as relevant and important now as it ever was.
Sabina Radeva is a graphic designer, illustrator, and teacher based in Oxford, England. In 2008 she graduated the Molecular Biology M.Sc. programs at Max Planck Institute, Germany. Gradually, she realised that her creative hobbies brought more happiness and fulfilment than working in the lab so she began to take on-line creative classes, read numerous design textbooks and attended art and design conferences. In 2009 she left science and started freelancing as a graphic designer. In 2015 she started her MA in Illustration studies at University of Hertfordshire.
