Illustrating a book - what do I do now?

So, I have to illustrate a book. I've never done this before. I've illustrated before, but not in this professional a capacity, and I'm a little nervous about it. I have nightmares (literally) about using the wrong sort of paper or of the final product looking like nothing I sent in. Those of you who have illustrated professionally before - what can you tell me? What medium do you prefer to use? How do you make the most efficient use of your time? Are there any books on the subject you can recommend? Etc. [more inside]

Looking for an old children's Bible story book

It's probably a long shot, but I'm looking for an old (1980s or older) children's Bible story book I had when I was a kid. I can't quite recall the name, but it might have been called something like "The Children's Bible Story Book." What I remember most about it were the awesome illustrations. Can anyone help?

When was this book written?

I recently bought a paperback book from an antique shop. The book's called The Mystery of Love, Courtship and Marriage Explained, and it was written by Henry J. Wehman, published by Wehman Bros. But there's no copyright date! Anywhere! In any form! The cover looks like it's a "newer" edition (1920's or so) of an older writing, since the writing uses language and refers to customs that seem outdated even for the early 20th century. There are details such as proper flirting with your parasol, the inappropriateness of women's rights meetings, marrying outside of your social class, calling your husband "Mister" instead of his first name, etc. The word "hugging" (not the act itself) is even called a vulgarity. So, it's old. But how old? How can I find out when this was actually written? Google turns up nada. [more inside]
