Customer Reviews

Hands down, the best flip book ever!
Ernie Robinson
It simply presents photos of each level with what you are looking at---one picture per page.
Alijandra
The original book was a treat for the eyes - not a second rate fuzzy copy.

If you like Eames, mathematics, outerspace you'll love this flipbook. You flip the pages and zoooom from the milky way through the solar system, into earth and ultimately into an atom in a man's hand.
Beautiful color images.

This picture book is an excellent pictorial view of the miniscule to the enormous. Very Interesting! Mathematics and science teachers at all levels should have this book in their classrooms. I can't wait to show my Algebra and Mathematics Laboratory students. On the other hand, this book would be interesting for anyone having interest in Science, Astronomy, Mathematics, and Measurement.

A physics professor showed our class the Powers of Ten film years ago and it blew my mind. The whole "as above so below" element still resonates with me today. This is a visual treat you will not forget and it's mobile! No need for a dvd player...you can flip the pages and see the action unfold over and over again.

I'm not sure what the reviewer below thought she bought but this is a FLIP BOOK. I collect them and can honestly say this is the Jewel of my entire collection. Hands down, the best flip book ever!

After seeing the film on which this little book is based, I can't help wishing it had more pictures. Still, it is a reminder of that amazing journey which takes us into the micro universe and out to the macro universe, alerting the viewer to the similarity between the two.

This is surely the biggest selling -- and best -- flipbook for several decades. I have designed a new means of speed control for flipbooks. I'm also working on a Green Earth video website. Guess what: I lived in Seattle from 1975 to 2001 -- uh, I be 73!
