All Yesterdays is a publication in regards to the method we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays goals to problem our notions of ways prehistoric
animals regarded and behaved. As an severe exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions on what's possible, what is
possible, and what's ordinarily ignored.

Written by way of palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically ingenious in its method of fossils of the earlier - and those
of the longer term.

It is these speculative possibilities that John Conway and C. M. Kosemen have explored in this book. Palaeontologists and palaeoartists talk about these sorts of ideas all the time-about the possibility that extinct animals were insanely flamboyant, that they had super-sized genitalia, or that they were insulated from the cool or even cold environments they sometimes inhabited by fat, thick skin, or fuzzy coats-but this is the first time ideas of this sort have been extensively discussed in print.

18 Allosaurus fragilis and Camptosaurus dispar Palaeontology aims to obtain a clear, natural view of the past, but gratuitous acts of predation and vicious monsters are an undeniable factor in attracting people to the study of dinosaurs. The tradition of palaeoart is full of such epic battles, almost as canonical as the clash of heroes in classical mythology. No children's book is complete without scenes of Tyrannosaurus attacking Triceratops, matched in miniature by a Velociraptor locked in mortal combat with a Protoceratops, and so on.
