Hi Sophie, thanks for sharing details about what sounds like it will be a fascinating open textbook! I’m excited to see that you’ll be working with Juan on this project, who was not only a professor of mine and @zoe’s at SFU, but also one of the few people who got me involved in open publishing a few years ago. :smiley:

Looking forward to seeing how you and Juan get on!
