I've noticed while my library of fossil books is very small, I have not come across a book about dinosaur fossils that is picture heavy with photographs of dinosaur fossils compared to everything else. Would anyone be able to recommend any picture heavy books that focus on dinosaur fossils (teeth, bones, skeletons, etc) that would make for a good flip through?
Ryann10006 posted a topic in Fossil LiteratureHello, I have been recently shopping around for fossil books that are more image heavy to look around at on my downtime, the few I have so far seem to be generally focused on all fossils and contain hardly any fossil vertebrates from the mesozoic or tertiary periods. Thus I am on the look out for any books that would be good fits, there was one I cannot remember the name for the life of me that I think is a large recent book that I've seen in B&N that goes over all time periods in full color with fossil photos/creature images, if anyone knows maybe which one that could be I was definitely on the lookout for it but any recommendations are awesome.
Oxytropidoceras recently pointed out an article of interest. It mentioned "Unpaywall" a new Chrome plugin to help find free and legal (paleontological) literature on the internet. Has anyone tried the service yet? @Fruitbat, @doushantuo I frequently try to find literature online but have not tried Unpaywall yet. Here is an article I found about Unpaywall titled "How a Browser Extension Could Shake Up Academic Publishing" By Lindsay McKenzie APRIL 06, 2017 in The Chronicle of Higher Education: http://www.chronicle.com/article/How-a-Browser-Extension-Could/239714 Here is the offer for Unpaywall at Chrome Webstore: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/unpaywall/iplffkdpngmdjhlpjmppncnlhomiipha Hopefully finding literature will be easier now.

I just read an awesome book on the Permian period called "When Bugs Were Big, Plants Were Strange and Tetrapods Stalked The Earth". It is written and illustrated by Hannah Bonner. This book is great for people who are interested in paleontology or people who just need to write a quick essay on the Permian period. One thing I loved about this book is that it is not like a boring, average text book (no offense to people who like to read text books). This book provides everything you need to know without being boring. Hannah Bonner did an excellent job making this book humorous and at the same time informational. Hannah Bonner has also made another book and I believe this era is before the Permian period. I will write a report on it as soon as I get my hands on it!
