Prehistoric Animals

The Public Library in Douglas, the town where I grew up, was hugely important to me during my childhood. I’m sure it helped fashion my love of books. Today, as I was browsing around blogs on the internet, I came across scans of a book on prehistoric animals that was published 50 years ago in 1960.
 
I remember that book! The library had a copy of it and I borrowed it to devour at my leisure. The art by Zdenek Burian was stunning, and some of those images from the book have remained as fresh in my memory as when I first saw them fifty years ago. It gave me quite a shock of recognition when I saw them once again today.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
