Summary "THE GREAT HALL OF DINOSAURS is an illustrated guide to studying and drawing dinosaurs ... Astounding dioramas of the world's biggest, fiercest and fastest creatures line the halls, from a lumbering family of grazing triceratops and a gnashing T-rex to a duo of swift-footed carnotaurus. History's 'terrible lizards' are more than a thundering Hollywood nightmare. William O'Connor brings these beautiful and complex beasts to life through accurate illustration based on the anatomical and scientific knowledge of contemporary paleontology. But in The Great Hall of Dinosaurs, our imaginations aren't limited by science: We can dream of worlds and scenes that may have existed millions of years ago, of animals we have never seen before, using nothing more than a simple no. 2 pencil and some paper."--Page 4 of cover.
