The Peterson First Guides series was first published in the mid 1980’s and I managed to collect almost all of them. One of the most unusual titles in the series was Dinosaurs, written by John C. Kricher and illustrated by Gordon Morrison, published by Houghton Mifflin in 1990. This slim volume is a treasure trove of paleoart memes from the era, most of which look very strange today and which are handily pointed out by Peterson’s trademark “look for this in the field” arrows.
