In recent days it seems there has been a veritable (and welcome) avalanche of new books focused on presenting both the inherent beauty and quirky charms of trilobites. Among the latest is Trilobites of the World: An Atlas of 1000 Photographs, a pleasing and easily digestible display of information and photos that has been carefully assembled by authors Pete Lawrance and Sinclair Stammers. Featuring an impressive array of 1000 photos—which depict over 700 different species in full color—this is a well-designed volume the deftly covers the nearly 300 million year reign of the world’s favorite fossilized arthropod. With Lawrance a leading collector, and Stammers a renowned photographer, the pair make a dynamic duo when it comes to gathering together and presenting specimens from the four corners of the globe.

This is not a scientific treatise, the focus is on the pictures, which come with just basic information -- the species, the age, the formation, and the location, and a few notes. To be sure, some of the specimens shown are far from the best -- the Drotops armatus looks like somebody broke off all the spines, and I have a much prettier Cryptolithus tesselatus in my own collection. But for a broad view of the enormous variety of trilobites out there there this book is hard to beat.
