These days, collectors are in the grip of a fossil-collecting frenzy. Dinosaur skeletons, eggs, bones and other fossils are selling fast on the art market. How do you start a fossil collection? Why are dinosaur finds so popular? And why does a T.rex cost as much as a Picasso?
In Dinosaurs Are Collectible, we dig up stories about the most sensational dinosaur finds. You'll also read about a dandy fur-coated fossil hunter, Charles Dickens's dinosaur novels, and stylish dining in an Iguanodon.
Dinosaur mania has fired the fancy of film directors and artists, too, bringing dinosaurs back to life on screen and canvas. But could the Jurassic Park scenario ever really happen? Could we reincarnate prehistoric monsters using dinosaur DNA?
Dinosaurs Are Collectible explores it, to the bone.
