Galileo Galilei's story is illustrated in a style that evokes Renaissance art, architecture, and cartography. The events of his everyday life, the struggles and successes, are captured through detailed attention on each page, which brings to life the world on the verge of discovery.
Through detailed art and lyrical text, Sís takes the reader on a literal, spiritual, and symbolic journey through time and memory to his childhood, his separation from a father far away in Tibet, and finally their reunion.
In a graphic memoir of his youth in Prague, Sís brilliantly weds artistic and design choices to content: tight little panels with officious lines and red punctuation; full-bleed line-and-watercolor spreads of nightmares and dreams; color and absence of color.
