The Life Nature Library was a series of books, published between 1961 and 1965, which explored topics of the natural world. Consisting of 25 hardbound books, one of them is about the early man and his origins. A redesign of the original Time Life series, the book reflects the primitiveness and the unknown that comes with the Early Man. Similar to their oddly-shaped stone tools, the book explores the idea of taking out chunks of the paragraph, carving the page in a beautiful and unique way.
