Описание: When James Gurney's Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time first appeared in 1992, it was immediately hailed as a fully imagined world of the caliber of J. R. R. Tolkien's. Gurney's premise -- of an undiscovered island where a race of mystical humans co-exists in harmony with intelligent dinosaurs -- has been since reiterated over and over in numerous films and by scores of other writers. Now, Calla Editions brings Gurney's spectacular artistry to a new generation in this 20th anniversary edition. Digitally re-rendered from the original transparencies, Gurney's dramatic panoramas of Dinotopia and close-up character studies of its inhabitants -- both human and saurian -- take on new vitality. And as a tale of high adventure and discovery told as entries and sketches in journal form, Dinotopia presents a shipwrecked visitor's glimpse into an imagined social order, a culture, and even a cooperative interspecies technology that will satisfy lovers of fantasy and science fiction of all persuasions. This edition includes a new Afterword written by author James Gurney as well as a special section of behind-the-scenes studies and maquettes he used in developing his paintings.
Описание: The voyage of discovery that Arthur Denison and his son, Will, began in Dinotopia continues in The World Beneath. Professor Denison and Will have been living on Dinotopia for several years, learning the marvels of this lost island continent where dinosaurs and humans have coexisted peacefully for centuries, cut off from the rest of the world. Now Professor Denison decides to explore the natural mysteries of Dinotopia. He turns his attention to the ancient caves that point to a long-lost Dinotopian civilization that seems to have used a technology beyond any that the Professor has ever before encountered. His journey takes him deeper and deeper into the heart of Dinotopia, into the World Beneath. Little does he know that his quest to uncover Dinotopia s deepest mystery will soon become a desperate race to save the very existence of the island. Beloved by a generation of readers, James Gurney s classic story returns in this lavish edition from Calla EditionsTM. The artwork has been reproduced from new plates digitally scanned from the original transparencies. This unabridged, expanded edition includes 30 additional pages, including a new Foreword by paleontologist Michael Brett-Surman and an Afterword by the author with over 40 behind-the-scenes sketches and photos. A Calla Edition, originally published by Scholastic, Inc., New York, 1995.
