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.

Thank you!
