Story

There’s no better dose of mortality than standing next to an organism that has weathered several millennia. It’s rare to have the opportunity to travel the hundreds of miles into Death Valley or across the Siberian taiga to commune with such specimens, but now it’s possible to own a memento of these ancient lives. This lush coffee table book by Rachel Sussman documents, as the title suggests, the oldest living things in the world and provides us with the ultimate inventory of Earth’s vast biological timeline. These timeworn species range from reverent to tragic, and they never fail to lend perspective to everyday life.
