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 

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!
