Behold, the Dinosaurs!: Leporello
Can you name 101 dinosaurs off the top of your head? Do you know which of them came first? Which was the first to go? Who was the tallest? How about the longest? The smallest? Fastest? Prettiest? Sleepiest? Dustin Harbin revisits some of the most awe-inspiring dinos to roam the earth in the Leporello format, a simple but beautifully illustrated infographic book that unravels 6.5 feet long.
Dustin Harbin is a cartoonist who lives in North Carolina. He is well known in the alternative comics scene for his Diary Comics published by Koyama Press. His favorite dinosaur is--of course--the Stegosaurus.
"It's a gorgeous parade of over 100 meticulously researched and rendered dinosaurs, simply marching on and on as the leporello unfolds: the tallest, longest, smallest, shortest, - they're all here. There might not be every single known dinosaur depicted here, but it's as close as it gets, and exquisitely, impressively so." - Zainab Akhtar, for "Comics Alliance" "Whichever is your favourite and however you choose to enjoy the book (it can be read as book, displayed on a mantlepiece or hung as an art print) you will love gazing at the array of dinosaurs that Dustin has lovingly brought back to life as they leap, crawl, run, fly, swim and slither towards extinction." - "Inky Goodness" "It's probably going to be a hit with anyone from eight to eighty." - "Design Week"
