Since its inception, the science of paleontology has been closely tied to art. Be it illustrations of bones or restorations of what extinct animals might have looked like, art has been essential to this science. That is why Jane Davidson's A History of Paleontology Illustration is such a valuable book. It surveys the changing nature of paleontological artwork over the past several centuries, providing a deeper insight into the methods and styles of illustrators of fossils.
