The Work of Douglas Dixon
When I was a child, my father was an artist and had a lot of illustrated books of artists that were popular during the 70's/early 80's. 

Though one of them struck me as being different. A book called 'After Man' by an author called Douglas Dixon. 

The book displayed a degree of forethought and detail that was missing from other fantasy art books in my father's collection. Even at a young age, it really stood out.

Dixon's book could best be described as 'Speculative Evolutionary Biology'. He took existing animals and imagined how they might evolve over a period of several million years, on an Earth where Man has long been extinct.

I recently came across some of his work on Pinterest, and thought it might appeal to OA fans.

I'm currently looking for copies of his work, but they seem to be out of print.
