peek inside the book with our online sample 📖

Dawn in Late Jurassic North America. A pair of huge Barosaurus lentus wake up as a large flock of the anurognathid #pterosaur Mesadactylus return to the trees to rest during the daytime. Sketch
#Barosaurus was a very large diplodocid that was one of the many #sauropods that inhabited North America during the Late Jurassic.
This sketch is done following the suggestion of patron Oliverandpaleothings who proposed Barosaurus as a taxon for me to sketch.

Our #introduction to #bookstodon!

Hello, we are Canongate Books, an independent #publisher of an eclectic mix of #authors for an eclectic and discerning audience of readers. You might know us from the spines of:

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Lanark by Alasdair Gray
The Book of Form and Emptiness by Ruth Ozeki
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat
The Outrun by Amy Liptrot
& many, many more.

We're based in Edinburgh and London, and next year we'll be 50. Hello!

While following a lot of people can populate your Home feed significantly, sometimes people (like me) end up boosting a lot and that can unexpectedly hinder your own experience.

So if you like someone's specific posts and don't want to follow their boosts, you can go to their profile under the [...] button, and select the "Hide boosts from account" button.

There is no algorithm on Mastodon. You have ownership and control over every filtering decision instead of some robot.


Happy UK publication week to
@aptshadow !

Ok, let me try this post as an #introduction here on Mastodon. Hi everyone, I am Gabriel Ugueto and I am a professional #artist who creates #paleoart and #sciart who specializes in illustrating both #extinct and #extant tetrapods. Here are a few recent examples of my work.
I am also a #herpetologist so I probably will be sharing a lot of stuff here about #amphibians #reptiles, and yes the latter includes #birds 😋
Have a bit of patience with me while I figure Mastodon out
