A visual masterpiece featuring more than 100 works of breathtaking new art, Journey to Chandara joins the original Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time and Gurney's two other series creations, Dinotopia: The World Beneath and Dinotopia: First Flight, in exploring a fully rendered world, complete with its own language, geographic locations and history and confluence of cultures and characters. In the spirit of Marco Polo and Gulliver's Travels, Journey to Chandara recounts the journal entries and adventures of explorer Arthur Denison and dinosaur Bix as they explore the exotic eastern realm of James Gurney's Dinotopia.
James Gurney's unique blending of fact and fantasy has won Hugo, Chesley, Spectrum, and World Fantasy Awards. His work has been featured in one-man exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Delaware Art Museum, and the U.S. embassies in Switzerland and Yemen. He lives with his wife, Jeanette, in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
