Full Speed Ahead! How Fast Things Go
Did you know a tornado travels faster than a racecar? Full Speed Ahead! directly compares the speeds of animals, modes of transport and forces of nature in a clear and visually-striking album format. Objects are grouped from slowest to fastest, with objects of the same speed on the same spread, creating fascinating "match" races. The bright, vintage-style illustrations by French design firm Cruschiform have strong crossover and museum appeal. A glossary in the back matter gives additional information on each object.
