About this book

Language: Japanese with scientific nomenclature

Following on the success of the first book, this is the second book of ultra-realistic depictions of diverse prehistoric creatures large and small set in modern-day scenes. In this Mesozoic edition, more than 100 species are selected from amongst organisms living in the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous, including dinosaurs, pterosaurs, mammals, birds, amphibians, plants and molluscs.

Summary in Japanese:
大人も子どもも楽しめる、超リアルなビジュアルブックの第二弾!
今回は「中生代編」です。
メインで取り上げる古生物の種類は、古生代編から大幅に増加!
古生代編を超える圧巻の内容となっております。

中生代編では、三畳紀、ジュラ紀、白亜紀の3地質年代を生きた生物から100種以上をピックアップ。
そのサイズの秘密に迫ります。
本書では、ついに恐竜たちがどーんと登場!
もちろん、海棲は虫類、翼竜、ほ乳類、鳥類、両生類、植物、そして軟体動物といったマニアックな古生物も登場します。

サイズ感を肌で感じてもらえるよう、前作同様に、中生代のさまざまな古生物を、現代の(身近な)風景に配置してみました。
“一般的な図鑑"に登場するあの古生物が
「うおー、これはデカすぎるでしょ! 」
「あれ、こいつってこんなに小さいの! ?」
といった具合に、そのサイズを直感的につかんでもらえます。

もちろん、その古生物が実際に暮らしていたシーンも科学的に再現してあります。
さらに、古生物を「上面」「正面」「底面」「側面」といった角度から描いた三面図的復元図も掲載。
古生物の全体像を把握する資料としてもご活用いただけます。

古生物のサイズをめぐり、現代と中生代が交錯しながら展開するシュールな世界。
「あの古生物、こんなサイズだったの! ?」
そんな感覚をリアルに感じてもらえる、マニアックな1冊です。
