Winner Blurb: 

With a sense of showmanship echoing the spectacle of Waterhouse Hawkins's own public presentations, this dramatic biography brings the work of the 19th century dinosaur artist to life. Using a rich palette, theatrical staging, and monumental dimensions, Selznick creates an exquisite balance between illustration and design in this distinguished marriage of science and art.

"From the textured leather-like scrapbook jacket, to an interior filled with fascinating facts and vibrant acrylic paintings, this dramatic biography presents the story of one person's creative vision. Selznick captures Hawkins's passion with whimsy, exuberance, and attention to historical detail," said McClelland.
