The Sandstone Bird - by Edward Hitchcock After publishing a scientific description of the dinosaur trackways of the Conneticut Valley, Edward Hitchcock also submitted an accompanying poem based on his research. The publisher declined to print it however, so Edward submitted to the literary magazine, The Knickerbocker, under the pseudonym "Poetaster" instead. Guest artwork by October Seagrave.
Anchiornis - by Jonathan Kane When Emily Willoughby first painted Anchiornis for a book collaboration with Jonathan Kane, the colour of the dinosaur was unknown. This poem is about the life of the dinosaur and how palaeo-art must change to stay scientifically accurate. Guest artwork by Emily Willoughby.
Untitled - by Thomas Chesmer Weston This was the first poem ever found for Palaeopoems. Published in Thomas' 1899 memoirs, it's about one of the earliest fossil-hunting expeditions to western Canada and reflects Victorian ideas about dinosaurs. Guest artwork by Katrin Emery.
