Journey back to where it all started in this deluxe collection of the classic Topps trading cards from 1993—just in time for the theatrical release of Jurassic World: Dominion
Jurassic Park was an immediate blockbuster and has gone on to become a multimedia franchise with five sequels, theme park attractions, comic books, toys, and more—including a set of trading cards released by Topps in 1993 to tie into the film. This comprehensive collection of the original trading card series—timed to publish alongside Jurassic World: Dominion—includes the fronts and backs of all of these classic cards, plus the special chase cards and rare promotional material. The book also includes text and commentary by Gary Gerani, editor of the original series, and an afterword by Chip Kidd, who created and designed the cover of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, which became the iconic logo for the franchise.
