We’re big fans of xkcd here at Gizmodo (who isn’t?), and also of learning about things, so we’re pretty excited for Randall Munroe’s upcoming book of explainer drawings, THING EXPLAINER: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words. We’ve got a sneak peek for you, below.
The book is a series of annotated blueprints that explain everything from ballpoint pens to the solar system using just line drawings and the thousand most common English words.
We got a previous at some of the artwork. Below, the Mars Curiosity Rover gets the Munroe treatment. (Open image in a new tab to embiggen.)
THING Explainer comes out on November 24th. Yes please.
