As a kid, this was the next-best thing to being able to pore over the fossil bones in a museum collection. In this post, I wanted to focus on a particularly inventive piece of layout design in Dinosaur that epitomises the creative flair that went into the Eyewitness Guides.
Not that I would know that. Dinosaur has an ingenious solution — a fantastically high quality photograph of the Natural History Museum London Diplodocus mount in original, tail-dragging guise is allowed to luxuriate over no fewer than eight pages.
Naturally, we start at the head, with the neck extending over to the opposite page. I do like that the Diplodocus is scaly, as opposed to having a Gurche or Sibbick-esque leathery hide, even if the scales are proportionately too large. But Diplodocus is very impressive too.

And so we reach the tail, or at least the first half of it. Mmm, chevrons. The Camarasaurus chevron is a clever inclusion, demonstrating how odd an isolated bone can look out of context to the untrained eye, or me. Excellent excuse. It does also tie in with the rearing Diplodocus shown in the lower left, pleasingly drawn in a fasion that evokes 19th Century etchings, but is clearly much more modern than that.
Seven pages after its head, the tail of Diplodocus peters out rather anticlimactically. If only it had a tail club, or something. The text is informative.ipdwew0030atl2.public.registeredsite.com/437672-best-smartphone.php
