"Paleo-art resides in many of the world's great Natural History Museums, but the most notable collection characterizing the present state of dinosaur art is that of John Lanzendorf. It would be impossible to collect all of the dinosaur artwork being produced today; if it could be done, John would be the one to do it. Highly respected by the artists he supports and the scientists he associates with, John has built an awe-inspiring collection that is representative of the genre and is the envy of many museums. As we move into a new millennium, his collection is the most appropriate source for documenting the marriage of the creative talents of artists and scientists." The art of natural history is both compelling and emotive, often emblematic of society's view of our world. This same art also reflects the messages that scientists hope to send to a general audience as a part of their effort to influence how the public view and supports science. Art is both the medium and the message. Dinosaur Imagery is a luxurious testimonial to the public fascination with dinosaurs, enriched by imagery that eloquently illustrates current scientific theories about dinosaur behavior, physiology, locomotion, and reproduction. The evidence for many of these hypotheses of dinosaur life is very good, and thus, the art of dinosaur depiction is rooted in scientific inquiry. The paintings and sculptures that illustrate dinosaur science are powerful, and museums and collectors vie for this art, paying top dollar to acquire it and display it. Dinosaur Imagery is a stunning fusion of superlative scientific inquiry and unparalleled artistic imagination. Regardless of back-ground, no person interested in dinosaurs should be without a copy of this book.

CURRIE is the Curator of Dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada, and an adjunct professor at the University of Calgary. He is the author of many books and scientific papers. His work has been reported on by the New York Times, National Geographic, the PBS Nova series, and a CBS special, as well as other media. With Chinese colleagues lie helped bring to light the first "feathered dinosaurs." His many expeditions to North and South America and Asia continue to unearth new fossils that bear upon both old and new questions of the history of life. MlCHAEL TROPEA is a prominent Chicago photographer. He was the primary photographer for A Collecting Odyssey, a book cataloging the Alsdorf collections in the Art Institute of Chicago. His credits also include work for famous auction houses such as Christie's and Sotheby's, well-known book publishers such as Harry Abrams, Inc., large corporations such as CitiBank and Sara Lee, the MacArthur Foundation, and numerous museums and galleries.
