All Yesterdays is a ebook concerning the approach we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays goals to problem our notions of ways prehistoric
animals seemed and behaved. As an serious exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what's possible, what is
possible, and what's generally ignored.

Written by means of palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically inventive in its method of fossils of the earlier - and those
of the long run.

Example text

Parasaurolophus and Lambeosaurus are familiar duckbilled dinosaurs, recognisable by their spectacular head crests. Duckbilled dinosaurs, or hadrosaurs, were the dominant plant-eaters of the Late Cretaceous, and had evolved one of the most advanced chewing mechanisms seen in vertebrates. Their crests were hollow and almost certainly would have been used to create loud honking sounds for communication. Lambeosaurus magnicristatus Mountain of Feathers? Therizinosaurus Some dinosaurs suffer from looking too exciting de-fleshed, leading artists to depict them in exciting and garish ways.
