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.

White has edited, written and illustrated comics, magazines and books for a quarter of a century. He has drawn dinosaurs since he was four, for fun and professionally, and has been called "the John Milius of paleoart" (by fellow paleoartist Dan Varner). He is currently a senior editor for Titan magazines.

Without reservation, buy it.
Not every illustration is excellent, and there is one I would describe as quite poor. However, most are absolutely outstanding and more than outweigh the (few) disappointing illustrations.
If you are even vaguely interested in paleontology, buy this book, the artwork gives a amazing new perspective on extinct life (not just dinosaurs).
One of the best books on ancient life I have encountered, a comment I make from the standpoint of quite a substantial collection of such books.
'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"
