Re: Favorite Dinosaur Image or most inspirational
Wow, ever had a memory so old you thought it was a dream? Thanks to
the link below it has all come back to me. Apparently I DID own a
book about a caveman on a dinosaur island and it DID have paper cut-
out toys inside. The book was called The Spear Thrower. The
publishing date was 73? which means I was 3 or 4 years old when I
owned it! I think I lost the book not long after owning it and it
simply became a dreamlike thing.
This post is great!

to agree on the Zallinger mural included in the "The World We Live

astronomy. The John Gurche Heresies cover was also huge as was Greg
Paul's masterpieces. Last but not least is William Stout's work in
"The Dinosaurs" (1981) http://www.hour25online.com/pix/

slightly rococo but grungily real dinosaurs in all their pooing,
knobbly, squabbling, grumpy, copulating, vulnerable and parasite-
infested glory. And a full five years before "Dinosaur Heresies".

Other way around: was first The Album of Dinosaurs and The Album
of Prehistoric Animals, and later combined. There were a lot of
other good "The Album of..." books: a Prehistoric Man one, but
various modern animal groups, astronomy, etc.
Man, this thread has been a MAJOR nostalgia trip!
