GNSI Members Only: From time to time the Guild
is asked to review books that relate to science illustration; I am
looking for a list of people to contact to conduct these reviews.
What’s the catch? You need to read the book and write up your
review for the Journal and online in a timely fashion, but there’s
a nice perk: you get to keep the book(s) for your library!
We have general guidelines for
reviews. If you have time to read a book thoughtfully, and feel
comfortable writing up your thoughts, we’d appreciate adding your
name to the list. We’ll then assign books as they come in to names
on the list. We will try to connect books with volunteers’ areas
of interest, otherwise we’ll do random selection so everyone has a
chance to review. Please contact Gail directly at
[log in to unmask], and let me know your particular area of
expertise or interest (botanical, zoological, paleo, art
education, general illustration, or ...???).
Let us know soon, we have a review request right now for a book on
identifying grasses and sedges. If you have some expertise in this
area that might be a good fit. First come, first served, but if
you have already reviewed books for us, it would be nice to let
others have a go at it.
