new law, last May. But even before year’s end it was in legal
limbo as ve vape shops, already selling the products, sued to
stop enforcement. In a negotiated settlement, those shops, two

ing lenticular printing, two of the four designs show movement when rotated. See the skeletal remains with
and without esh and watch as an approaching T. rex suddenly lunges forward.
Scientist and paleoartist Julius T. Csotonyi created photorealistic illustrations of T. rex with depictions
based on the growing body of research on these dinosaurs. Csotonyi painted digitally using a stylus on a
computer screen, an approach he likens to acrylic painting. Art director Greg Breeding designed the pane.
e “Nation’s T. rex,” the young adult featured on two of the new stamps, was discovered in 1988 on federal
land in Montana. Painstaking excavation revealed what would become one of the most studied and important
tyrannosaur specimens ever found, including the rst T. rex arms ever recovered. e Nation’s T. rex is now
exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History.
