Pre dinosaurs, trilobites roamed the earth’s sea floors for nearly 300-million years before becoming extinct for unknown reasons.
Fortunately for curious humans, trilobites left behind an abundance of fossils, which look more like magical creatures from another galaxy than fossils from this planet. Their intricate patterns and designs along with a crayon box assortment of colors make them perfect “treasure hunt” collectibles, according to Trilobites author Riccardo Levi-Setti. A professor emeritus of physics at the University of Chicago, Levi-Setti’s decades-long passion for collecting trilobites has culminated in this book, his second on the subject, with 235 stunning photographs of trilobites he has found from all over the world. This gorgeous, well-researched book is a must-have for anyone interested in these pre-historic creatures, as well as anyone who simply wants an impressive book to display on the living room coffee table.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show.
