A paleoartist is an illustrator who specialises in the science and art of reconstructing ancient animals and their world. In Dinosaur Art, ten of the top contemporary paleoartists reveal a selection of their work and exclusively discuss their working methods and distinct styles.

Filled with breathtaking artwork - some never before seen - and cutting edge paleontology, this is a treasure trove for dinosaur enthusiasts, art lovers and budding illustrators.

'An absolute pleasure to pore over, and almost every page is a window into a vanished world....the lavish art and interviews will undoubtedly inspire the next generation of great paleoartists.... - Smithsonian 'Alas, there were no photographers around to record the gruesome events. Fortunately for us, there are some highly skilled paleoartists who can provide a realistic look at dinosaur predation ...' - Huffington Post 'Dinosaur Art and the artists whose work is displayed within its pages are a feast for the mind, the senses, and the imagination. It strives to illustrate not only the dinosaurs, but the art and science that bring them alive for us all.' - Red Orbit 'Magnificent, awe-inspiring, mind-blowing... words truly can't describe the level of artistic mastery showcased in this collection. Bottom line: If you're a dinosaur aficionado, regardless of age, you need to experience Dinosaur Art. This is a book to be savored, shared, and cherished.' - B&N Book Blog 'In his new Dinosaur Art book, paleo-artist and comics editor Steve White reveals the beauty, brawn and mystique of these giant beasts that walked the Earth millions of years ago.' - Live Science ( www.livescience.com)'Titan Books, publishers of this coffee-table book that is sure to be a phenomenon amongst paleontology enthusiasts, outdid themselves splendidly and an extra round of applause should definitely go their way!' - Killer Aphrodite Perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about Earth's history, or just wants to escape to a world of giant monsters who happened to be real. - io9
