Our Latest Issue

The Summer/Fall 2021 double issue of Fossil News: The Journal of Avocational Paleontology is now available.

The Summer/Fall 2021 issue is packed! We start with a special “PaleoBooks” section with reviews and excerpts of eleven new books of interest to fossil fans from the youngest to those … nearest extinction. Fossil News then introduces readers to the “Patron Saint of Pareidolia,” Chonosuke Okamura, and takes on a controversial topic with a vividly illustrated essay, “The Toxic Masculinity of Dinosaur Art.” There’s a paleonews roundup, a feature on prehistoric creatures featured on international postage stamps, a description of Germany’s famous Posidonia Shale, and an “in process” column by veteran paleoartist Esther van Hulsen, who, in this issue tells how she brought Darwinius masillae to life.
