Fandex Family Field Guides
A unique series of family field guides, FANDEX puts information right in the palm of your hand. Combining lively text and full-color photos in a die-cut deck format, FANDEX goes everywhere. Take it along on a trip, use the deck for dinner table conversation, turn to it for instant reference.
Meet Stegosaurus and Stegoceras (the head banger). An airborne giant, Quetzalcoatlus, with a wingspan the size of a WWII fighter. The meat-eaters: T.Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Allosaurus, who strode eight feet with every step—try out-running that! There are fish—like ichthyosaurs, including Excalibosaurus, named after King Arthur's legendary sword because of its long snout. The swift and deadly raptors. Sauropods that could strip the tops of trees, and the agile little Compsognathus, the size of a turkey. Each dinosaur is illustrated in amazingly life-like detail, and accompanied by information on size, diet, and lifestyle. The deck also includes key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary.
Bringing the world of North American wildflowers to your fingertips, FANDEX presents a field guide that's as beautiful, practical and intriguing as the flowers themselves. Die-cut images are sharp, the colors true, shapes life-like—identification is guaranteed. Plus a quick chart of vital stats includes family name, life cycle, range, and habitat. Accompanying entries cover the history and cultural significance of each plant—Columbine's use as a love charm, the wars fought over Wild Hyacinth, the medicinal power of White Sage—and detail its use in the home garden.
Bringing the world of Mythology to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide to the legendary figures of ancient Greece and Rome. Which 12 gods and goddesses ruled from Mount Olympus'? Who are the Fates, the Graces, the Muses? How did Theseus slay the monstrous Minotaur and escape from its labyrinth? What was the one thing to remain inside Pandora's vase? Each entry is illustrated with a rich selection of images drawn from statuary, painting, pottery, frescoes and mosaics, and includes the subject's lineage, personality and symbol.
