->''What if my bones were in a museum\\
Where aliens paid good money to see 'em?\\
And suppose that they'd put me together all wrong\\
Sticking bones on to bones where they didn't belong!''

* StarfishAliens: The future paleontologists. We don't know what they look like, but they're not mammals and given how shaky their grasp of skeletal structure is, they're probably not even vertebrates.

The premise of the book is that, while we can be sure of some aspects of dinosaur anatomy and behavior, a significant amount of morphological and behavioral characteristics are forever lost to time. As such, artists seeking to reconstruct extinct animals should not be afraid to speculate, even speculate wildly, about certain aspects regarding the life appearance and behavior of extinct species. In the case of All Yesterdays, the end results of this speculation are over 60 illustrations of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals looking and doing things that, while they may appear very unusual compared to how these animals are normally depicted, are fully in keeping with what is known about them, and what is known about modern animals as well. For example, the cover image depicts the dinosaur, ''Protoceratops'', climbing trees. ''Protoceratops'' does not have any anatomical specialties that suggest a tree climbing lifestyle. However, the same is also true of goats, [[http://theboattrain.blogspot.com/2013/07/goats.html but that doesn’t stop some of them from doing it anyway.]]

** Another entry featured a bat-winged scansoriopterygid, a speculation that just this year was vindicated by the discovery of Yi qi.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The ''{{Literature/Cryptozoologicon}}'', by the same authors, a book on various legendary beasts such as BigFootSasquatchAndYeti and El Chupacabra where they speculate on what their biology and evolutionary history might be like if they were real.

* IKnewIt/ LifeImitatesArt: One of the entries in ''All Your Yesterdays'' featured a plankton eating, filter feeding Anomalocaris. Guess what paleontologists discovered not long after it was published.
