Hi, Everyone!
We currently have three books in need of review:

*John Gurche - Shaping Humanity 
What did earlier humans really look like? What was life like for them, 
millions of years ago? How do we know? In this book, internationally 
renowned paleoartist John Gurche describes the extraordinary process by 
which he creates forensically accurate and hauntingly realistic 
representations of our ancient human ancestors.

*“14^th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration,” 
published by the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation*
The Institute established the International series in 1964 with the hope 
of supporting and encouraging contemporary botanical artists. Every 
three years, the International series features the works of talented 
botanical artists from around the world. Collectively, the catalogues 
contain the most comprehensive record available of 20th–21st-century 
botanical artists and illustrators—the number of individuals represented 
now totals 1,129.

*“The Big Apples of New York, The Story of How New York State Became The 
Big Apple,” by A. L. DuBois (Ann is a GNSI member)*
" The popular conception or more correctly misconception is that New 
York City alone is The Big Apple. The truth is much larger, historically 
more complicated and deeply meaningful..... The book has 26 original 
botanical illustrations of available heritage apples.Listing of 190 New 
York heritage apple orchards with their location and contact 

If you would be interested in reviewing any of these books for us within 
the next few weeks, please contact me _/off list/_. Although certainly 
all of these books would be fun and informative to read, the ideal 
reviewer should have some expertise or serious familiarity with the 
topics presented, and not just an avid reader's curiosity.

The bonus for your time is that you get to keep the book!

Thanks in advance!
Again, contact me off-list please.
