His reportage spans a wide range of science topics, from paleontology to space, from life sciences to global issues, and beyond, to art, literature and science fiction. He was the managing editor of Newton, the immensely popular science magazine in Japan for 20 years, since the time of the first issue in 1981. During his time at Newton, he also published numerous science books. Over the past 40 years, he has been covering the development of the study of dinosaurs, and during that time he has witnessed a dramatic evolution in the world of dinosaur art, or paleoart. This book is a collection of his favorite works by contemporary paleoartists from around the planet. Luis V. Rey is a Spanish-Mexican artist.

He then began to study paleontology in depth to prepare for his updated and revised reconstructions for publication in popular books. His work took him around the world for research and for meetings with top paleontologists. He has co-published with several of these experts. He is currently working with Stone Company and Gondwana Studios creating murals for exhibitions.

Rodolfo Nogueira is a paleoartist and a graduate in industrial design. He developed and published a scientific methodology, Paleodesign, for restoring extinct animals. He has worked in museums in Brazil, Argentina, Spain, the United States, Portugal, Germany and Georgia. With more than 15 years of experience in artistic illustration and 10 years in scientific illustration. His illustrations have been printed on Brazilian postage stamps and in the Dinosaurs of Brazil line of toys.

His long-term artistic theme is life, which includes reconstructed images of dinosaurs and other paleoorganisms. He has shown his works, mainly acrylic paintings, in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Tokyo and Nagoya. Since 2005, though, he has gradually shifted to digital creation, and this is now his main focus. In 2013, he created reconstructed images of two new discoveries: Aurornis xui, a newly unearthed species of dinosaur announced in Nature; and a Therizinosaurus nesting site in Mongolia, announced by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. In 2014, he created an image of the body of a dead dinosaur drifting under the sea in ancient times based on remains found by Hokkaido University in Hobetsu, Hokkaido as well as a new reconstructed image of Deinocheirus. In 2015, he drew two other new discoveries, Nipponoolithus ramosus and Huanansaurus ganzhouensis. Digital tools are very empowering for drawing things like the scales on dinosaur skin, and for retouching, which is a useful medium for interacting with researchers. He hopes to continue creating his vivid images of ancient creatures, based on insights gained from discussion with researchers. Emily WIlloughby is an American scientific illustrator best known for her reconstructions of feathered dinosaurs, both living and extinct. Her work has been featured in a variety of forms, online and off, including the National Geographic Society, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Shanghai Natural History Museum, and in various paleontological research reports in journals such as Evolution and Nature News. Her first book, a recently released coauthored work featuring a series of her paintings of feathered dinosaurs, is relevant in the context of evolution/creation controversy in the US. Emily enjoys working in a variety of media, from digital painting to acrylics, oil, gouache and watercolor paints to bird photography. As a result of her background in biology, her primary focus is the fusion of research, realism and aesthetics in artwork. Emily lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she is studying for a Ph.D. in behavior genetics. Raul Martin is a Spanish illustrator, born in Madrid in 1964. He has been a professional illustrator for over 30 years and has had a deep professional and personal interest in paleoart for the last 20 years. These years of experience and ongoing study have given him a great deal of paleontological knowledge about fossil plants and vertebrate and invertebrate animals, since the Mesozoic and Palaeozoic eras are his specialty. He has worked for some of the most prominent paleontologists, including Paul Sereno, Curry and Kristi Rogers, Jennifer Clack, Alan Titus and Jose Luis Sanz. He also works regularly for some of the leading scientific journals, including Nature, Scientific American and National Geographic, and collaborates in large scale projects for prestigious museums worldwide. He employs both traditional and digital techniques to achieve his realistic style. In his digital work, he avoids artificial methods such as photo-montage and rendering, so his digital creation process is identical to his work with traditional medial like oil and acrylic.
