William Stout Signing at Stuart Ng Books, Saturday, April 18, from 2:00 to 4:00pm


Stuart Ng just sent out the following news item detailing the upcoming William Stout: Prehistoric Life Murals book signing. The event will be on Saturday, April 18, from 2:00 to 4:00pm.

Stuart Ng writes: We are pleased to announce:

William Stout will be signing his new book in our showroom and for our patrons worldwide.

Bill will be at our showroom on Saturday, April 18, from 2:00 to 4:00pm to sign his new book William Stout: Prehistoric Life Murals.  As an added bonus, Bill has kindly agreed to draw your favorite dinosaur or prehistoric animal in your copy of the book.

William Stout: Prehistoric Life Murals collects all his paintings for The San Diego Natural History Museum, Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, and The Houston Museum of Natural Science.  He also describes his approach and methods, illustrated with numerous preliminary drawings and small-scale paintings.

Bill is one of America’s foremost dinosaur muralists and illustrators as well as a multi-talented artist, conceptualist, and designer for film (animation and live action), theme parks, comics, books, and more.

He is also one of our favorite artists and this new book is fantastic, so we are very pleased to offer it to our patrons.  In these paintings, Bill captures the excitement, dynamism, and sense of wonder we all felt as kids about dinosaurs and the prehistoric world.

Incorporating the latest paleontological information, these recreations are educational as well as accessible making this is the perfect art book for dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages.  An inscribed copy with a drawing would make a great gift.  (I’m getting a bunch of these myself for that purpose.)

If this book was available when I was a kid, I would have been all over it.  Looking at this book takes me back to childhood memories of poring over dinosaur books illustrated by Charles Knight or Zdenek Burian.

Here are two murals that are in the book: http://www.williamstout.com/gallery/murals/
