By John Conway, C.M. Kosemen, Darren Naish

All Yesterdays is a ebook concerning 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 seemed and behaved. As an severe exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what's possible, what is
possible, and what's quite often ignored.

Written through palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically resourceful in its method of fossils of the previous - and those
of the long run.

Example text

In recent years, these views have become opposing stereotypes, putting prehistoric animals in straightjackets of appearance and behaviour. We wanted a way out ? a way that would show dinosaurs (and the other extinct animals of the Mesozoic Era) as plausible, real animals that engage in such complicated behaviours such as play, courtship, and the expression of curiosity. While it is reasonable to think that the predominant purpose of palaeontological art is to display the latest knowledge about extinct animals, it can also serve as an arena for the proposal of new hypotheses, rather than the repetitive drawing of proven theories.

Kosemen. To the future! This book goes beyond some speculative possibilities about the life of the past; it also indulges in a fun thought-experiment about a hypothetical future. We humans have struggled to interpret the often scrappy remains of fossil reptiles and other animals ? it has taken us decades, and a huge amount of luck and careful detective work, to understand the true life appearance of small, predatory dinosaurs, giant marine reptiles like plesiosaurs and mosasaurs, and other such creatures.

Fossil skin impressions (mentioned online in 2010, but unpublished at the time of writing) apparently reveal that Triceratops had nipple-like protuberances located within the centres of the scales that cover its back and tail: it is inferred that these structures anchored quill-like structures of some sort. 39 Since Psittacosaurus was close to the ancestry of all large-bodied, horned dinosaurs, it would not be unreasonable to suggest that all ceratopsians possessed some sort of spiny integument.
