It seems like every kid goes through a dinosaur phase and there's good reason. Dinosaurs are amazing creatures made almost mythic because we can't see them for real. This makes them the perfect creatures for a child's fertile imagination. Dinosaur Art: The World's Greatest Paleoart will appeal to these kids with beautiful illustrations that are equalling engaging for older kids or adults.
The book is a collection of art from ten modern paleoartists whose work will be familiar to paleontology fans. Each artist has own section in the book that starts with a description of who he is, his background, and his prior works. The pages following are his interpretations of not just dinosaurs, but their whole prehistoric world. It's a bit like getting ten separate books compiled into one beautiful hardcover volume. Each artist has a distinct style so although their illustrations are consistent with current paleontological beliefs, they still look entirely unique to each artist.
There may be bright, digitally painted dinosaurs on one page and black and white pencil sketches on the next. The contrast from artist to artist and medium to medium makes flipping each page a surprise. Along with descriptions of each image and a bit of background on its creation, there are also artist interviews to add context to their works. This truly was created for, and by, those who've never left that dinosaur phase of their lives.

Dinosaur Art: The World's Greatest Paleoart
Bringing to life the distant past requires a unique artistic skill that blends imagination and paleontology — the study of prehistoric animals. Steve White edits the collection. From the offset this book declares itself as an art book first and science second. Every page has beautifully reproduced images—some fully rendered masterpieces, others just a sketch or an idea. If, like me, you are a newcomer to the paleoart world, you may not be familiar with most of the illustrators in the book, but I assure you would recognise their work. Not one to pick favourites, I did take a notable liking to the work of John Conway.
