Peter Brown (above with the LB1 skull) passes along word that another Homo floresiensis volume is due out soon.
The book is Little People And A Lost World: An Anthropological Mystery (ISBN: 0822559838) by Linda Goldenberg Atkinson. It targets the juvenile readership, at 112 pages, from the Lerner Publishing Group in their Twenty-First Century Books Series. Set to be published in September 2006, it will have a library binding.
More information on Mike Morwood’s and Penny van Oosterzee’s new book, entitled The Hobbit’s Tale: Discovery, Significance and History of a New Human Species on the Island of Flores, Indonesia can be found here.
No cover image is available for the new Atkinson book, to date. However, for the visuals, perhaps they will use illustrations such as the following.
This is a new drawing of a female Hobbit from artist Elaine Supkis. Considering the type specimen, LB1, is a female, it has been amazing to note how many of the re-creations are of a male H. floresiensis. Thanks to Ms. Supkis for sharing this. You may visit her site and read what she shares about why she imagines the female H. floresiensisthis way, by clicking here.
