About

 Luis V Rey Blog 

 Website 

The original book Extreme Dinosaurs was published in the year 2001, and was a compilation of  a previous decade+ of my paleontological artwork.  In those ages,  what was really outstanding about it,  was the perceived "outlandish but serious"  use of colour and the fact that the depiction of feathered dinosaurs was widespread for the first time in a book for a general young audience. It has been out of print for a long time, but many people still remember it. So, two decades since its release, and given the amount of new material, new approaches and new discoveries, I have decided to do a sequel to the original. Extreme Dinosaurs Part 2, The Projects was expanded to 140 pages, illustrating four projects that have been essential part of their respective travelling exhibitions.  The   illustrations, text and concept of each project are important. It is an ambitious project, well researched and  backed-up with late-minute  paleontological information. Some of it is controversial, some of it is very speculative and provocative, but you have to be daring to try and put forward a new, popular, dinosaur book that artistically surprises these days, with so much competition in the field. The publishing companies don't like personalised books on a subject like this... This project is extremely personal. You may like it or hate it but will never leave you indifferent.  So I have decided to try and publish it myself. With your support we would be able to do it... Thank you!

Risks and challenges

I'm trying to print this book in the best possible quality. The initial run will be all hardback.... any following editions will be paperback. The budget has been suggested by a trusted printer, but may change if we change printer or we'd like to further improve or do limited edition add-ons, Hopefully everything will fit to budget and there will be no more risks involved.
