By John Conway, C.M. Kosemen, Darren Naish

All Yesterdays is a publication in regards to the means we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays goals to problem our notions of the way prehistoric
animals appeared and behaved. As an serious exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions on what's possible, what is
possible, and what's more often than not ignored.

Written by way of palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically resourceful in its method of fossils of the earlier - and those
of the longer term.

In this scene, set in the Late Jurassic, a herbivorous Camptosaurus is seen approaching a resting Allosaurus in what appears to be a curious social gesture. While Allosaurus was certainly a regular predator of Camptosaurus, this encounter seems to be a peaceful exception to the norm. In today's ecosystems, predatory big cats and herbivores have also been observed interacting in similarly non-violent ways. Tenontosaurus tilletti Takes a Stroll Like mythical figures cast into tragic roles, some dinosaurs suffer terrible fates in palaeoart, experiencing the same deaths over and over again.

If we assume that the sex habits of Mesozoic dinosaurs were similar to those of their modern descendants (the birds), then a dazzling, even bizarre, range of possibilities reveal themselves. Among modern birds, ducks lead notoriously rough sex lives, involving aggressive mobbing and gang-rape. 23,24 We have imagined a similar scenario in this particular reconstruction of Citipati, an oviraptorosaurian maniraptoran theropod from the Late Cretaceous. This Citipati has expired after a particularly rough season of mating, but at least its genes have been safely passed on to the next generation.
