EON is a hard- cover art/ science book illustrating evolution on the planet.
It explores how we got here.
From singular cell to biodiversity.
From extinction to survival.
It is connection to our ancestors and our place in the world.
Is it a blueprint for the future?
This book is a meditation, an art experience, a visual and poetic journey you can share with your loved ones of all ages.
A perfect gift for your mother, uncle or niece.
What can we learn from billions of years of becoming with each other?
My name is Aviva Reed and I am a visual ecologist and storyteller.
I am also a scientist, artist and educator. A visual ecologist is someone who visualises ecology and brings together the interactions and invisible forces that shape and mould our world. My illustrations and artworks often become my teaching resources. This book will also be a useful addition to my kit for teaching ecology.
I have been working on my study of evolution for over a decade, illustrating multiple versions, studying extensive texts and fossils. This book is the culmination of all my work, both written prose and extensive illustrations, put together in an environmentally printed hard- cover book of
beauty, discovery and imagination.
Through this pozible campaign you can pre- purchase a book or an artwork, organise a workshop, or a school visit and support the publishing of EON: the story of the fossils…an illustrated adventure of time….by Aviva Reed.

The Eon Book's major costs are the printing on environmentally friendly paper stock. It's expensive to be ethical these days!! But it is of utmost importance to me, and I believe the more we support ethical industry, the easier it will be for these industries to thrive. So, no virgin forest in these books.
Other costs include the collaboration with award winning graphic designer Jaye Carcary,
postage of the hard covered EON book to all you glorious pozible supporters
and $100 in administration costs towards pozible administration.
Environmentally friendly Printing Costs: $12, 000
Graphic design: $3,500
Total: $16, 000
The main challenge here is making enough $$$ to print an environmentally friendly hard covered book. This is my most expensive option, though I feel it is really important that this book is printed sustainably. Hard covered books have a longer life span and since it IS the story of how life came to be, a precious art book that lasts generations feels like the right vessel for the story. But it is expensive.....
Other than that,
the book is ready to go, the button for printing ready to be pressed and packages ready to be filled to make this long dreamed beautiful book a reality.
