William Stout: Prehistoric Life Murals.
Hardcover
144 Pages
30 by 25 cm

Used but in great shape. The dustcover is a little worn but the book is fine apart from a dent to the top outer corners (pictured).

From the publisher:

An astonishing look at dinosaurs and their primeval worlds. This lavishly illustrated 144-page volume contains all of Stout’s stunning murals for The Houston Museum of Natural Science, Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom, and the San Diego Natural History Museum. In 1981, award-winning paleo-artist Stout’s critically acclaimed book The Dinosaurs - A Fantastic New View of a Lost Era launched the on-going public renaissance in the re-examination and revision of dinosaur appearance, intelligence and lifestyles. Michael Crichton acknowledged this legendary masterwork as an inspiration for Jurassic Park. Now Stout has returned to take us on a new journey, deeper into Earth’s primordial past.

Stout’s murals of extinct predators and prey dramatically capture our imaginations. Incorporating the latest paleontological evidence, the artist breathes life into prehistoric creatures that are both scientifically accurate and emotionally stimulating. Beyond the book’s inherent scientific content, Stout’s detailed commentary guides readers through his creative process. Variations between the different stages in each mural’s development are explained in entertaining and easy-to-read text. Included are preliminary drawings, colour studies, and one-quarter-scale oil paintings, guiding the reader through Stout’s meticulous step-by-step methodology from initial design to finished masterpiece.

Stout creates vistas of a world that existed millions of years ago. The highlight of the book is Stout’s recent twelve mural commission by the San Diego Natural History Museum, which includes oil paintings up to thirty-four feet long. Stout has created murals that will amaze viewers, inspire future generations of budding artists, and enthral eager young dinosaur hunters for decades to come.
