In stunning cross-section art, this dramatic visual guide shows how an early settlement changes into a bustling modern-day city, moving from the Stone Age into the 21st century and even the faraway future. Using funny, warm and friendly illustrations which are packed with absorbing details, it shows how new buildings are constructed on the rubble of the old, as the detritus of the city builds up under its streets. Eagle-eyed readers will have hours of fun spotting the descendants of one particular family though the centuries, and seeing how once-grand buildings become buried while other structures survive. Picture spreads and factual commentaries reveal the prehistoric origins of the settlement and its transformation into a modern-day metropolis, and even give a glimpse into a possible faraway future, when ice sheets threaten to overwhelm the city.
