PT definitely has a lot of interesting articles to pick through. Some nice science stuff too. Definitely highly recommended!

Also, Dinosaur Mailing List is good for a read and subscription to if you're more in-line with the scientifically minded crowd.

By now I managed to collect 18 back issues of Prehistoric Times and one virtual issue. I donīt regret getting these and to me they are set books.

For Christmas I got two great new books: This one:

https://www.amazon.de/Walking-Whales-Water-Eight-Million/dp/0520277066/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483649019&sr=8-1&keywords=walking+whales

Walking whales by "Hans" Thewissen and this one:

https://www.amazon.de/Sauropod-Dinosaurs-Life-Age-Giants/dp/1421420287/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483649139&sr=8-1&keywords=sauropod+dinosaurs

"The Sauropod Dinosaurs" by Mark Hallett and Mathew J. Wedel

Very nice books indeed, jewels in every collection.
In "Walking Whales" I admire Thewissen for his patience in searching fossils in crisis-ridden regions of the world. His vivid writing has the whales resurrect right before my eyes.
The sauropod book is lavishly pictures by Halletīs wonderful art, although I donīt always agree to his shrink-wrap heads.

Yay! Can't wait to see what you've got!
What I love about Allosaurus is that it lived an extremely violent life that was rife with broken bones, cuts, scrapes, infections, sprains, and yet it just kept on truckin.

These three books deal,  each in its own way,  with the crossings between palaeontology,  art and culture.  I appreciate them very much.  Questions welcome!

Would you give me some information about Dinosaur Imagery?
Want to buy it soon.

Theropodavid, I highly recommend "Dinosaur Imagery". It has often been misunderstood and earned some bad Reviews due to the fact that the cover and the title evoke wrong expectations. What People think at first is "Dinosaur Imagery" is a high class cofeetable book with many colorful pages, reconstructing the Evolution of paleo Pictures vividly with good Pictures. This is the direction of "Paleoart" by the Taschen Verlag. "Dinosaur Imagery" is an eclectic Essay Collection without a central thesis (as in "The Last Dinosaur Book) or recurrent theme. It has 36 chapters and a great Bibliography.
The paper Quality is not good and the Pictures are all in b/w. I got it as a bargain for nine or so Euros. But Iīd happily had paid up to 30 Euros for it.

Dinosaur Imagery has been on my shelf for a while and I don't recall paying too much for it at the time, It is in good condition - I'm quite happy with this one and pleased to have it. A recommendation from me as well.

Based on that last bit, I think you're describing Paleoimagery, not Dinosaur Imagery. The latter is definitely good quality paper & all color pictures.

Oh yes of course! Sorry!
So it is possible we are talking about two different books!?
