May I bring your attention on something, please? It's about Play Visions Prehistoric Amphibians. In my room, I have a book edited by Marshall Editions about prehistoric animals. It's the 2000 french version of a book lensed in english back in 1988. I want you to look at the pages about the prehistoric amphibians. Do you noticed the same thing as I did? For their Prehistoric Amphibians line, PLAY VISIONS USED, AS MODELS, THE VERY ILLUSTRATIONS OF THAT BOOK. The postures are the same, the colors are the same, the textures are the same. All the very same!

The same book was used for models of the prehistoric mammals and prehistoric reptiles as well!

And those illustrations have shown up in many different books over the last 30+ years. Plus a Grolier CD-ROM called Prehistoria

I am using the chance to show Christophe's collection to turn easier to everyone to compare.

I think I have two, and I have seen several others reusing the same illustrations. Plus the CD-ROM (which uses older pictures--and does not include the conodont)

The main one is The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs & Prehistoric Creatures.

Some pages can be see here:
