As seen on Science News.


I would have appreciated a greater explanation (an introduction, perhaps?) of how much was text from On the Origin of Species and how much was artistic license. About a third of the way through, I concluded that one particular font was Darwin's words, and another kind of font was used to illustrate examples of Darwin's principles using what we know now about evolutionary biology.

The selection of Darwin's text was quite dry: it's not really the kind of book that makes me want to rush out and read On the Origin of Species. But is it really an adequate substitute?
