About the Author
Lily Murray is a writer who lives in a cottage in some beautiful woods. She has worked as an editor and writer for more than fifteen years. She enjoys walking, bird-watching, trips to the natural history museum (with or without her children), and reading about new dinosaur discoveries. She is also a (very amateur) fossil hunter.
Chris Wormell is a self-taught artist who specializes in wood engraving and linocut. He also writes and illustrates his own children's books. Working for a diverse collection of clients worldwide, his unmistakable style has lent itself to some fantastic campaigns that have been highly commended throughout the industry.
This addition to the Welcome to the Museum series offers a vivid tour of a paleontological exhibition...Wormell’s dramatic digital engravings are reminiscent of vintage scientific plates; each is paired with a corresponding key identifying the image, while in sections of lively, clear prose, Murray offers greater detail about the subjects in the tableaus.
The full-page illustrations by Wormell are impressive and capture the imagination...it treats the subject matter with a seriousness dino aficionados will appreciate. A solid purchase for collections with the need for more dinosaur content.
