Om författaren

Before writing and illustrating Dinotopia, James Gurney painted reconstructions of ancient civilizations for National Geographic magazine. He has illustrated seventeen stamps for the U.S. Postal Service, including The World of Dinosaurs. His Dinotopia artwork has won the Hugo, Chesley, Spectrum, and World Fantasy Awards and has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution, the Norman Rockwell Museum, and the Delaware Art Museum. His most recent books, Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist (2009) and Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter (2010), are based on his daily blog gurneyjourney.blogspot.com.

At last, James Gurney's beautiful Dinotopia picture-books are back in print to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. First published in 1992, 'Dinotopia - A land apart from time' is the winner of many awards including a Hugo. As mentioned by previous reviewers this is a superbly illustrated picture book. It looks rather like an under fives story book with its beautiful pre-Raphaelite style colour plates (they are superb paintings in their own right), but be warned for youngsters there's a lot of big words on the pages as well. The text of the story reads very much like a Charles Dickens tale, being a journal supposedly written by a Victorian traveller, Arthur Denison, who was washed up in fabulous Dinotopia with his 12 year old son Will `in the Year of our Lord 1862'. My son (10) found the text heavy going but enjoyable (mostly I read it to him), and naturally he loved the detailed pictures. He even asked me `is this real?'.

This book is a big tome (160 nearly A4 sized pages), 265 x 245 x 12 mm, with full or half page picture plates on just about every page. Printing quality is superb, with glossy paper, and although we prefer the substantial hard-back version, the paperback is also well bound. The books are very suitable for adults and teenagers as well, particularly for those interested in art and dinosaurs - the latter may bias it towards boys slightly, particularly as the main characters are boys. Also have a look at the superb 2002 twin DVD film set of this book ([[ASIN:B00007JGC6 Dinotopia [DVD]]]), updated slightly to the present age in that the visitors are teenage brothers who arrive via a plane crash rather than shipwreck, but time-less Dinotopia itself hasn't changed. This DVD film spent $86 million dollars to turn James Gurney's original illustrations and story book into an equally beautiful motion picture - Waterfall City looks startling in both. As this DVD film is a favourite of my sons, we subsequently bought him this £15 book and the later TV series spin-off [[ASIN:B0000A33RB Dinotopia - The Series [DVD]]]. See the official dinotopia.com site for more pictures and details of the books. We liked the book so much, we ordered the matched sequels [[ASIN:1606600338 Dinotopia The World Beneath]] and [[ASIN:0740764314 Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara]] for Christmas, both equally as enchanting. So 5*. If interested, I'd buy the books ASAP as they always seem to go out of print fairly quickly, although you can generally pick up decent copies quite cheaply second-hand if that happens.
