vintage science and engineering book series... by cover.

Years ago I saw a flickr set (I think) of the covers of a vintage series of books on science and engineering. Each cover (under the dust jacket) was a single color and featured a simple embossed diagram of the book's topic (e.g rockets, electricity & magnetism), with no text. They were gorgeous. Please help me find the series title!

I'm a Ph.D. student who knows how important it is to have great graphics for scientific papers, posters, and job talks. Good scientists don't just come up with results, they present the results in ways that inspire, educate, and amaze others. I'm looking to find contract graphic designers who specialize in scientific work. [more inside]

All of the science, none of the hassle

I'm due to present a scientific poster at a conference in about two weeks. I'm overextended and don't have the time to make it myself. Is there a company that will write text, make charts, do the graphic design, and help me with printing? [more inside]

Y'know, I'd really like to be a luthier.

I'm a college sophomore on my way to a CS Major / Religion Minor. Apparently my initial career options (just from that major) are a little bit better than my English-major friends. But I'd much rather make interesting things than work in a cubicle. How do I do this? [more inside]
