Question on re-publishing Public Domain books.

What's stopping me laying out the text of these top PD books using a new PD font, designing my own covers and (occasionally) internal illustrations, and re-selling them via places like lulu.com? Just seems a good way to practice my design / layout skills and maybe turn a profit. Thoughts?

A chapter of my very own...

I'm an environmental scientist. I just received an email from a group called "Intech Open Access Publisher", referencing one of my papers, and asking me if I'd like to submit a chapter for a book. My first thoughts were "Oh man, I didn't think that paper was that great...". My second thoughts were "Hmm...I bet this is a form email sent out to thousands of researchers based on a keyword search, and it may well be a waste of time to submit an abstract." Has anyone else had experience in this sort of thing? Is it legit?

I'm looking for examples of well-known or iconic magazine sections.

Some magazines have regular features, pages or sections that they seem to be well-known by or that one would associate with that particular magazine. Examples might be Harper's Index, NYMag's Approval Matrix or even Glamour's Do's and Don'ts. Heck, the entire Vanities section of Vanity Fair is kind of like this. [more inside]
