The Geological Survey of Northern Ireland (GSNI), on behalf of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI), is preparing the text of a popular book on the landscape and geology of the North of Ireland, for launch in October 2010. The intention of the publication is to raise the awareness of the general reader of the interaction between geology and landscape and to demonstrate their influence on the development of society. This is intended to be a publication of the highest quality.
A publishing company is now sought to:
• take the GSNI’s text, edit it as appropriate;
• assemble and/or acquire illustrations, which may include the commissioning and management of a photographic service;
• design the book;
• commission and manage printing and production;
• distribute the book to retail outlets.
