What are some books to hit up on Dinosaurs, particularly recent ones? I recently finished this...

Depends. Are you looking for fictive or - presuming that dinosaurs existed - scientific litterature?

I'm looking more along the lines of scientific literature.

Sorry, I have no idea what books you'd like.
I only come here and pretend to give a crap about dinosaurs, when actually I don't care about them that much (or at all for that matter).

It's not very recent or scientific but I want to recommend Ricardo Delgado's Age of Reptiles comics. The omnibus is available from Dark Horse

If you're seriously invested in this stuff I would recommend The Dinosauria: Second edition. I'm no expert on dinosaur paleontology, but that book has provided me with pretty much anything I've felt I've needed to know concerning scientific literature on dinosaurs. It was released more than 10 years ago though, and a lot has naturally changed since then, but I've heard from more knowledgeable people that it's still really the only one of its kind. I don't think there is any other dinosaur book as comprehensive and detailed as this one.

For less heavy (and pricey lol) reading that's still great food for thought I would heartily recommend All Yesterdays. It's more of an art critique than anything, but the subject is the artistic restoration of extinct animals and its relation to paleontology. Heavily illustrated by two very talanted artists it brings good points on the problems with tropes and "conservative" restorations in dino-art and on how much we really know about the world of the deep past.

My favorite part of this book is where it makes its point by illustrating extant animals in ways extinct animals have been and may be reconstructed today. Pic related.

I forgot the links.

http://www.sivatherium.narod.ru/library/Naish_al/part_01.htm
Link to All Yesterdays online if you don't want to spend money. It's in russian, but can be comprehensible by using Google Translate.

Link to the publisher's website, where you can download All Your Yesterdays, which is basically a fan-art collection of the original book with commentary by the authors. Not as good as the real book, but definitely worth checking out for the fine art and the fact that it's free.

raptor red is pretty much the only recommendation i have... they really don't write enough dinosaur-themed books.

Raptor Red is old but it's pretty much the best dinosaur book short of Jurassic Park.

I just picked this up for my Datapad. Premise seems interesting enough, but I haven't gotten a chance to read it so I really have no idea if it's bad or good.

Aquagenesis by richard ellis was a great read, i ended up stealing/extended borrowing it from the local library, good times, read that OP
now sure....it's not about dinosaurs exactly but rather more before dinosaurs but still excellent reading and i near learned Latin from it, it's just that much dino-sciences involved it!!!

I finished the book. For the life of me I can't figure out how to take screencaps off of Kindle on my Samsung Galaxy 1. I have shamed the family.

If you go to your local library, they may have a scientific encyclopedia you could look at.

I had this book when I was a kid. It's pretty colorful and easy to read with stats for each dinosaur and stuff.
