Episode 19 – Love within the Time of Chasmosaurs

Greetings, every one! Right this moment’s episode options fairly a distinction: the naïve, infantile creatures illustrated by Hillary Stebbing in her 1946 youngsters’s e-book Extinct Animals, contrasted in opposition to the gnarly, outlandish fashionable work of Zubin Erik Dutta, a real up-and-comer within the palaeoart world. How do horror and pin-ups affect dinosaur artwork? Does each ceratopsian scrap will get its personal genus identify? What on earth is a Jakapil? And the way did we find yourself with a dinosaur e-book with no T. rex in? All this and extra in right this moment’s fantastic episode.

Classic Dinosaur Artwork

Do take a look at Niels’ assessment from again in 2020, if you happen to haven’t already.
