Summary

A superlative, fascinating graphic account of Albert Einstein's strange world and how his legacy has been built upon since.
It is now more than a century since Einstein's theories of Special and General Relativity began to revolutionise our view of the universe. Beginning near the speed of light and proceeding to explorations of space-time and curved spaces, Introducing Relativity plots a visually accessible course through the thought experiments that have given shape to contemporary physics.

Scientists from Isaac Newton to Stephen Hawking add their unique contributions to this story, as we encounter Einstein's astounding vision of gravity as the curvature of space-time and arrive at the breathtakingly beautiful field equations. Einstein's legacy is reviewed in the most advanced frontiers of physics today - black holes, gravitational waves, the accelerating universe and string theory.

    GodSpeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic tells Cobain's story in the format of a totally unique graphic novel. 
     
    Writers Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy have constructed their story using biographical fact interwoven with references to the singers tortured self-image. The vibrant art by Flameboy captures both the subjective dreamscape and the objective reality that form the heart of this examination of a tragic musical legend. 
     
    Much more than a biography, GodSpeed is unlike anything you have read about Kurt Cobain before. Going beyond the facts it transmutes an extraordinary life into an equally extraordinary work of art.
