Nomoco (cover art and “In Their Own Backyard")  was born in Fukuoka, Japan, and currently lives in London, England. Nature and sounds are her inspiration, and she enjoys playing with ink and its organic movement. She has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in London, Milan, Tokyo, Singapore, and New York. She also produces work under the name Kazuko Nomoto.
In 2009, only four years after receiving her BFA in photography from the California College of the Arts, Melissa Kaseman (“She’s No Lightweight" and “Plant Science Matters”) was named one of PDN30: Photo District News Top 30 Emerging Photographers. Her work can be found in numerous publications, including T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Dwell, Readymade, and Wired. She lives and works in Oakland, California.
A freelance illustrator living in Sigtuna, Sweden, Mattias Adolfsson (“Piercing the Multifaceted Coat”) tries to keep his ink from smudging while drawing (he refuses to follow the trends and go digital) but seldom succeeds. Apart from that, he is moderately clean and enjoys following online courses from American universities.
Dan Ferber (“Exposing Cancer’s Soft Spot”) is a contributing correspondent for Science, a contributor to many magazines, and coauthor, with Paul Epstein, M.D., of the upcoming book, Changing Planet, Changing Health: How Climate Change Threatens Our Health and What We Can Do About It. A resident of Indianapolis, he’s a longtime enthusiast of the ancient Chinese art of t’ai chi.
