As you're probably aware, a new edition of The Chlamydomonas 
Sourcebook is currently in production.  We are looking for 
photographs or drawings suitable for the covers of each of the three 
volumes.  These illustrations can be in full color.

Our editors at Elsevier would like to have the final illustrations in 
hand by April 18th, so we need to work quickly.  If you have images 
that you think might be suitable, please send low-resolution .jpg 
files for review to Elizabeth Harris, chlamy from duke.edu.

The three volumes, with their working subtitles, are as follows:

Volume 1. Introduction to Chlamydomonas and Its Laboratory Use (by 
Elizabeth Harris)

Suitable illustrations might include light micrographs or EMs of 
individual cells or gametes pairing; we're open to all possibilities 

Volume 2. Organellar and Metabolic Processes (edited by David Stern)

For this one, perhaps something on the "green" side of Chlamy? 
Roughly half of this volume is concerned with various aspects of 
metabolism, and half with photosynthesis, respiration, and biogenesis 
of chloroplast and mitochondria.

Volume 3. Cell Motility and Behavior (edited by George Witman)

Here we'd like to see an immunofluorescence image of the cell, an EM 
of the flagellum/basal body, or perhaps a line drawing illustrating 
IFT or some other process or structure.

Thanks in advance for your interest and help!
