Banish those January blues with a sneak preview of the next issue of the magazine for dinosaur fans and collectors of prehistoric animal merchandise – “Prehistoric Times”. The next issue of this quarterly magazine is currently at the printers and once off the presses it will be rushed out to subscribers at tip-top speed.

Gregory S. Paul’s “Field Guide to Dinosaurs”
One of the highlights of issue 120 will be a feature on Gregory S. Paul’s “The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs”. As this blog article is being written, the second edition of this book sits proudly on the desk. It is being used as a reference to check some information on the Late Triassic Theropod Coelophysis bauri in preparation for a revised and updated fact sheet we are writing. The forthcoming magazine will focus on this book and provide a comprehensive review of this excellent hardback which has been compiled by one of the most respected dinosaur experts and illustrators. On the subject of illustrators, the magazine will continue its trend of commemorating some of the best palaeoartists from times gone by with an article about Zdeněk Burian, the Czech artist and book illustrator, regarded as one of the pioneers of scientific illustration.

Toxodon and Concavenator
The two featured prehistoric animals in issue 120 are the large herbivorous mammal Toxodon and the Early Cretaceous Theropod Concavenator. We are looking forward to seeing all the reader supplied artwork along with all the regular items such as Tracy Lee Ford’s immensely informative “How to Draw Dinosaurs” and Phil Hore’s prehistoric creature profiles. The winter 2017 edition will also include a review of the top news stories on fossils and dinosaur discoveries over the last twelve months – this really is a jam-packed magazine.
Not too long to wait now, until our copy of “Prehistoric Times” arrives at the office.
