The Art of the Dinosaur is a collection of dinosaur illustrations by nine of the world's most technically and aesthetically accomplished paleoartists today. Each dinosaur is reproduced elaborately and faithfully based on the most recent scientific discoveries, and these astonishing detailed illustrations will upend readers' conventional ideas about dinosaurs.

Paleoart is any original artistic work that attempts to reconstruct or depict prehistoric life according to the latest knowledge and scientific evidence in paleontology today. Paleoart first became extremely popular during the 1990s following the megahit Jurassic Park (1993) and has been enhanced by advances in computer graphics technology. Since 2000, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology has awarded the Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize for achievement in the field. Honorees featured in the book include Luis V. Rey, Davide Bonadonna, and Rodolfo Nogueira.

The artists in this collection present a selection of their works that show not only the dynamism of this artistic genre, but also the great detail and individual technique of each art work itself. The artistic renderings are the result of collaborations with paleontologists and are based on the most recent discoveries. The artists' own words about their professional focus, their methods and techniques and how they became fascinated with dinosaur art, are also presented. Informative captions include the name, habitat, and time period of each dinosaur, along with the media used in each art work.

Dinosaur lovers, fantasy art fans, as well as 3D art professionals and students will enjoy exploring the world of dinosaur art today with this gorgeous full color hardcover book.

From the Author

This book has been an exciting project for me to work on as an editor. I have had the opportunity to create a collection of my favorite works by contemporary paleoartists from around the planet. I am sure that in these illustrations the cutting edge images of dinosaurs will surprise most readers, as they are far away from the standardized dinosaur images we are accustomed to. I'm sure this will be a stimulating experience. I hope you enjoy it!
