Finally, my book "Sjøskorpionen på Ringerike" (The Sea Scorpion in Ringerike) is finished! This book is the last in the palaeontological trilogy of "Ida" and "Monsterøglene på Svalbard". It is written by Jørn Hurum and Torstein Helleve, and the almost 300 illustrations in the book are mine.

Treboker by EsthervanHulsen

It has taken us about three years to make these books. The firts book; Ida, is about the oldest and most complete primate fossil in the world, found in Messel Germany. The second books tells about the amazing jurassic sea reptiles being dug up on Svalbard. And the third book is about life in the silurian period in and around Ringerike (Norway). In this area have been found some wonderful fossils of sea scorpions and the earliest fish.
The books have been published in Norway, by Cappelen Damm. There has been great interest form other countries, and Ida has been translated in French, Dutch, and will come out in Chinese, Japanese and Russian soon. The second book is also available in French, and will probably be published in the other languages too.

In case you are interested, the books are available her:…

Here is a page from the second book:

EsthervanHulsen Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you. Volgens mij ben je Nederands, of niet?
Ikke46 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015
Ja, dat klopt Esther, jij ook dus? Ik twijfelde, omdat ik zag dat je uit Noorwegen kwam, maar allicht kan je vanuit Nederland daar naartoe verhuisd zijn :D
Wat maak je ongelooflijke prachtige dingen! Wat je ogen zien, wat betreft dieren en natuur, kan je zo gedetailleerd op papier zetten, getekend of als schilderij...:nod: Ook je eigen website is zo mooi verzorgd, en heb ik meteen bekeken! Ik hoop nog vele werken van je hier te mogen zien, je staat in mijn Watchlijst, dus dat zal wel goed zitten :D
