Example text

All Yesterdays What images come to mind when you hear the word "dinosaur"? Perhaps you picture enormous lumbering animals, lurking in the swamps of old; or maybe you imagine lithe predatory dinosaurs sprinting on lean muscular legs, perfect killing machines with mouths agape in perpetual screams. In recent years, these views have become opposing stereotypes, putting prehistoric animals in straightjackets of appearance and behaviour. We wanted a way out ? a way that would show dinosaurs (and the other extinct animals of the Mesozoic Era) as plausible, real animals that engage in such complicated behaviours such as play, courtship, and the expression of curiosity.

No doubt some people will find this reconstruction preposterous, and perhaps they will be right. However, we felt that not enough dinosaurs were reconstructed as "cute" beasts, whereas in nature, polar animals can look quite pulchritudinous under layers of fat, muscle, fur and other insulation. Microraptor gui Almost twenty years of fossil discoveries have firmly established that certain small, meat-eating dinosaurs were covered in feathers, to such a degree that even popular science books routinely depict these animals with some sort of integument.

Readers may be surprised to learn that many people who have reconstructed extinct animals have frequently done so without recourse to these vital steps. We in fact know that this was true of some of the greatest and most influential palaeoartists of all time. The Czech master of ancient animals and landscapes Zdenȸk Burian (1905-1981), for example, best-guessed the life appearance of dinosaurs and other vertebrates by fleshing out museum-mounted skeleton on paper without the use of measurements.
