Trevor Bounford's day job is to convey lots of information in immediately comprehensible graphic form. He is also a noted science-and-biology illustrator. Bounford has put his talent and experience in both fields to work in conceiving, researching, writing, designing, and illustrating this unique deck of forty-eight cards. One side of each card presents a painting of a dinosaur, with its name spelled formally and phonetically. The card's opposite side features a graphic comparison between the subject saurian's size and that of a human; a compact, instantly grasped taxonomic lineage; a timeline showing when the beast appeared and when it went extinct; and concise notes on its known range and its physical and behavioral points of inter.
A major pleasure to dinosauophiles young and old, Dinosaurs is also a graphic tour de force.
