This autumn also brings a special addition to the New Naturalist stable – The Art of the New Naturalists, due to be published in October 2009.
With over 100 volumes published over the last 60 years, the New Naturalist series is the longest-running and arguably the most influential natural history series in the world. Throughout the years, the distinctive dust jacket illustrations have become a trademark of the series. The earlier cover designs were created by Clifford and Rosemary Ellis, while Robert Gillmor has been responsible for the design of the more recent volumes. The Art of the New Naturalists will prove to be a fascinating read for everyone interested in the complex story behind the development and production of the artwork.
