550 Million Years of Human Evolution in an Illustrated Flipbook




Graphic artist Jurian Moller created a flipbook that lets you watch 550 million years of human evolution unfold in a matter of seconds. He writes: “This flipbook goes back in time and shows you the evolution of the generations in both a personal and scientific way. The differences between the generations on each page are very difficult to see, but the long, continuous ancestral line goes right back to our very origins.”

The action is on full display above. Below, watch the same flipbook in an animated form. Purchase the book in various formats at Moller’s site here.
