This 2014 edition features expanded content, new photography, further interpretation on Darling's etchings, and has been redesigned.

The Prints of J. N. Darling discusses Darling's development as an artist and etcher, and traces his evolving conception and depiction of wildlife in his cartoons as well as his etchings. It provides information on his studio practices, techniques, and his relationship with his assistants. The fine art prints, including questioned and reattributed works, are fully catalogued. The inspiration and drive for a third edition of this publication is easily attributed to Christopher "Kip" Koss (1935-2013), Darling's grandson and long-time supporter of the University Museums, to whom this edition is dedicated.

As one of the most popular of University Museums' publications, it is befitting that we not only re-print this publication after 24 years since the last edition, but update, add new content and interpretations, and redesign in Kip's memory. The most substantial addition is the inclusion of selected interpretations commissioned from renowned professionals, both scientists and naturalists, in the fields of ecology, animal science, and wildlife management. New contributions are from: Erwin Klaas, Professor Emeritus, Animal Ecology; James Pease, Associate Professor Emeritus, Natural Resource Ecology and Management; Steve Lekwa, former director, Story County Conservation, Iowa; and Tom Davis, award-winning writer, Green Bay, Wisconsin. In addition, never before seen images selected from the Koss' family archives illustrate Darling's life, work, and passion for all things wildlife.
