All Yesterdays: Unique and Speculative Views of Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals

What a cool book. This is full of speculation about what dinosaurs looked like, which is probably really different from how they’re usually drawn. They probably weren’t as sleek, and some of them had feathers, and some of them were probably fuzzy. I had never considered fuzzy, cuddly dinosaurs, but the pictures in this book are so great, now it’s all I want to think about.

There was also a really cool part where they imagined how people in the future would draw modern animals based off incomplete fossil records and other clues. It was really fascinating.

I’m not a serious science person, but the writing in this was very accessible and engaging. Even if it hadn’t been the pictures were just so great. Super fun.
