A new publication project

 We are currently developing this publication which we expect to be out within 2-3 years.  Writing of this book will be easy as we are one book old publisher so we know the glitches and pitfalls which we could avoid. Secondly there are two authors putting work on fasttrack. Lastly we have a fantastic and dedicated team of data miners, designers and editors.

Contribute your Photos

While the authors have their repositories of insect photographs which they have been taking for past 10 years, however we are open to use stunning insect pictures of other photographs. If you think you have good collection of such photographers, do share the link where they are uploaded. Flickr is a best place to upload your photographers. We could then select the ones we need and later on we will send you request for high resolution picture. We pay a small fee for one time use of Rs.500/- each picture. Thanks for your help.
