    DescriptionWhen James Gurney's "Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time" first appeared in 1992, it was immediately hailed as a fully imagined world of the caliber of J. R. R. Tolkien's. Gurney's premise -- of an undiscovered island where a race of mystical humans co-exists in harmony with intelligent dinosaurs -- has been since reiterated over and over in numerous films and by scores of other writers. Now, Calla Editions brings Gurney's spectacular artistry to a new generation in this 20th anniversary edition. Digitally re-rendered from the original transparencies, Gurney's dramatic panoramas of Dinotopia and close-up character studies of its inhabitants -- both human and saurian -- take on new vitality. And as a tale of high adventure and discovery told as entries and sketches in journal form, "Dinotopia" presents a shipwrecked visitor's glimpse into an imagined social order, a culture, and even a cooperative interspecies technology that will satisfy lovers of fantasy and science fiction of all persuasions. This edition includes a new Afterword written by author James Gurney as well as a special section of behind-the-scenes studies and maquettes he used in developing his paintings.
