Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types by Sharon Werner and Sarah Forss


“Scary and Scaly,

Lumbering and Lumpy,

Fast and Ferocious,

Big, Broad and Bumpy.”

It’s been hundreds of millions of years since dinosaurs walked the earth, Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types helps bring them back to life. From Allosaurus (al-oh-sore-us) to Zuniceratops (zoo-nee-sair-uh-tops), dinosaurs are just way cool, but they're even cooler in A-Z typography. Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.

Here you can see the giant mouth of the Giganotosaurus (jy-gah-noh-toe-sore-us) created using this art form:


Inside this beautifully and uniquely illustrated book, you'll also find factual information about each dinosaur in the most eye-catching, clever way that also includes super cool fold-out pages!  Can't get enough typography or fold-out pages?  Then check out Alphabeasties and Other Amazing Types by the same authors.  You'll start with alligators made of aaa's and end up with zebras made of zzz's.  Fun reads for all ages!
