|Joe Kaufman's Big Book About Earth and Space - Golden Book 16845 - Published 1987.|
It's basically a combination earth science and astronomy book, and the topics covered are: Early ideas about our world, the stars, the planets, the sun, the moon, the earth, gravity, energy from the sun, the air or atmosphere, the weather, weather instruments, clouds, lightning, thunder, tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, the seasons, climate, plains, plateaus, hills, mountains, mountain climbing, trees, forests, jungles, deserts, the polar zones, moving continents, earthquakes, volcanoes, underground, caves, rocks, minerals, crystals, water, the oceans, seashores, rivers and lakes, ponds, bays, streams and the Future (featuring, of course, Kaufman's trademark future people wearing personal antennas).
|Life without gravity looks way more fun, yes?|
|This 1970s weatherman has such character.|
|There's waaaay too much going on this illustration, but the energy and whismy (and the emo animals) are a good example of Kaufman's overall illustration style.|
