GNSI member *Mervi Hjelmroos-Koski* is leading the charge on a 
Kickstarter project for the Denver Botanic Gardens School of Botanical 
Art and Illustration, the location of one of our 2014 conference field 

The project is entering the final stretch, and the fundraising effort 
has been very successful. Now is a great opportunity to score one of the 
reward items when you donate!  The kickstarter project page is here: 

The primary goal is to raise funds to publish the limited edition 
/*Practice Makes Perfect: A Botanical Illustration Sketchbook*/. It is 
an art book of 76 illustrations made by 16 instructors and 60 artists 
from the School of Botanical Art and Illustration at Denver Botanic 
Gardens. It celebrates the program's 34th anniversary and its 
restructuring as the School of Botanical Art and Illustration.

/*The campaign ends Sunday, Oct. 5!!*/
