Synopsis

Dinosaurs went extinct more than 60 million years ago, but these prehistoric creatures still ensnare our attention. In Dinosaurs: Encyclopedia Prehistorica, two award-winning pop-up artists combine their skills to present ravishing raptors and heavy, long-necked giants in all their majesty and strangeness. Each of the book's multilayered spreads feature one spectacular, large pop-up and several booklets of smaller pop-ups and text.
