The list author says: "I have compiled a list of some of the best prehistoric life and paleoart books of the century! Some of the listed items are dated and should be viewed with a forgiving eye. Generally speaking, the more recent the publication the better the information on the topic addressed. Keep this in mind when you review the list. The list isn't necessarily intended for paleontology professors.
"A gem of a book intended for younger readers. That said, this wonderful book is loaded with information and beautiful dinoart that even the most venerable dino lover will enjoy. A BIG Iguanodon thumbs up!"
"This book is stunning. Like Howard Zimmerman's book "Dinosaurs!: Biggest Baddest Strangest Fastest," "Beyond the Dinosaurs: Monsters of the Air and Sea" is loaded with beautiful paleoart. The animals in this book include, not surprisingly, pterosaurs, mosasaurs, ichthyosaurs and plesiosaurs. But there are prehistoric mammals represented as well--a selling point for me. Highly recommended!"
"Some drop dead gorgeous stuff in here! Spectacular sculptures, paintings, and drawings await the gaze of your mammalian eyes. "Dinosaur Imagery: The Science of Lost Worlds and Jurassic Art: The Lanzendorf Collection" is more of a coffee table book than anything else--and a good one at that."
"Okay, okay, the drawings and information in this book are out of date and sometimes dreadfully inaccurate, but I love this little treasure--mostly because of the art. The pictures are weird and have a strange 3-D feel about them. You'll see what I mean if you get a copy."
