I am working on putting together all the images for a new basic textbook in landscape architecture to be entitled “The Fundamentals of Landscape Architecture”. This will be published by AVA Publishing, Lausanne, Switzerland. It will have distribution in Europe through Thames and Hudson and in the United States through Watson Guptill. It will be translated and copublished in the future in several other countries. The book will be published in April of next year.
I am in need of a great variety of images for the book, especially to illustrate the chapters on representation and design development. I would be grateful to receive your work to include in the book – everything from sketches to computer modelling, models, storyboards, film and video stills, axonometrics, plans and sections, and so on.
The book has quite a tight budget, and thus I am not able to offer any payment other than the satisfaction of seeing your work in print (and credited) and the bit of exposure it might offer.
I can also not guarantee that the work will be published if submitted. I need to spend the next week or two looking through work to decide what will fit best with the content. All images will require a contract, which I will send upon the selection of images for the book.
I am on quite a tight schedule, so I would appreciate receiving the work as soon as possible.
If you are interested, please send thumbnails of the images to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief description. Otherwise, and perhaps best for all concerned, would be for the work to be uploaded to land8lounge so everyone can see!
I look forward to seeing your work!

I will be emailing you some images, mostly sketches are a variety of projects. If you find you are lacking anything as you compile your book let me know. I have many more illustrations, sketches etc. My email i will be using to send the files is email@example.com, that way you can check a junk email folder just in case. Thanks

Many thanks for your images. They’re great – and thanks also to the others who have contacted me with images.
I will be finishing up the initial image list over the weekend, but I may well come back with more requests as the book shapes up. Everyone should feel free to continue to send images over the weekend.
