Journal of the Institute of Conservation Vol 41, no 1, February 2018: A 
Festschrift for Jonathan Ashley-Smith 

We are pleased to announce that a special Festschrift issue of the Journal of 
the Institute of Conservation celebrating the continuing work of Jonathan 
Ashley-Smith is now available online with the print issue due out very soon: 
The issue features contributions by invited authors who were asked to reflect 
on the impacts Jonathan has made on the profession, their specialism, or on 
their own development. While some responses are framed around Jonathan's 
seminal work on risk, others have been prompted by his recent concerns on the 
decline of practical skills and the need to reboot conservation ethics.

The issue is adorned by a magnificently vital image of Dr Ashley-Smith by the 
renowned artist Ralph Steadman, to whom Icon is extremely grateful.
