Medicine's Michelangelo: The Life & Art of Frank H. Netter, MD. It will be in print in October.
If you've ever looked up medical illustrations so you could learn more about the human body, chances are good that many of the illustrations you saw were created by Frank Netter. His daughter Francine Mary Netter has done a spectacular job of pulling the reader into Frank Netter's life. I had always admired him just because of the beauty of his art, but now I admire him even more.
Here is another cool detail: Quinnipiac University Press is the book's publisher, and Quinnipiac University just recently opened the new Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine.
I am glad to have had the privilege of following in the editorial footsteps of my colleagues Patrick Inman, who served as the book's developmental editor and is talented at seeing the big picture, and Robin Miura, who, as the book's agent, played matchmaker between the author and Quinnipiac University Press and then recommended my services to the press. I know Patrick and Robin through the Copyediting-L e-mail list and through the private (members-only) e-mail list of the Editorial Freelancers Association. It's vital that freelance editorial workers have good connections.
Updated at 11:21 a.m., August 20, 2013: In a lovely coincidence, I've just now discovered a feature story (a PDF) about Netter that appeared in the January–February 2006 issue of Science Editor, the journal of the Council of Science Editors, just a few short months before I became a CSE member.
