The renown Czech artist Zdeněk Burian is best known internationally for his paintings of dinosaurs, extinct mammals and prehistoric man. Over the last few years we have made available books showcasing his illustration art and now can announce the availability of a new book showcasing the prehistoric art for which he is so well known.
This first book, of a projected series of three, contains a total of 412 paintings, illustrations, and .sketches, of which 344 were reproduced from the original art. The remainder were scanned from high-quality negatives, slides, or xerocopies while only a few, labeled in the book as “original unavailable” (originál nedostupný), are photographed from the original publications. Included are previously unpublished sketches and notes. This volume is a massive 578 pages, 9 1/2” x 13” in size and weighs over 8 pounds!
We have been chosen by the Czech publisher Albatros (text is in Czech) as their American distributor. You can read a detailed description of the book and Burian’s history of prehistoric art in English here:
