Timeline of the Planet of the Apes

After my misadventure with Lulu’s shipping costs to Canada, I managed to get ahold of a copy of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes via an auction by author Rich Handley on eBay — and I’m glad I did!

Rich Handley’s Timeline of the Planet of the Apes is a magnificent labor of love. He’s taken on the staggering task of trying to make sense out of the jumble of contradictory facts and figures — not to mention temporal paradoxes — in the five original movies, the live-action and animated TV series, Tim Burton’s remake, and more, presenting a fascinating chronology of humanity’s downfall, the rise of the apes, and the ultimate fate of our planet.

The book is gorgeously designed, handsomely printed, copiously annotated, and more fun than — you guessed it! — a barrel of monkeys. Highly recommended.
