Zoom In, Zoom Out is a groundbreaking new visual reference book promising an amazing new experience for the reader: With each turn of the page, the viewpoint changes. For example, the opening spread in one "zoom sequence" might feature a cutaway of different plants growing in the soil with their root systems visible, but in the top left corner we see a deer's nose in the frame as it chews some grass. In the next spread, we zoom out to the deer in his habitat to discuss forest creatures. There is a mountain range visible in the background. In the next spread, we zoom out to an aerial shot of the mountaintops as we see a river forming there that pours into the sea at a delta. In the next spread we pull back into the atmosphere to see a hurricane heading for the region.

In this way, we continue to shift our perspective through a run of spreads, zooming in, zooming out, as well as going sideways, forward, and backward. Through this inventive visual technique, readers are kept constantly engaged, and invited to consider the connections between different aspects of their world.
