David Strauch

Portland, Maine, United States


I have written and illustrated two books and a review package on measurements,
because I have believed (for decades) that it is high time the U.S. committed
wholeheartedly to metric measurements. "Measuring Things: The Basics" is my latest
book, a text/activities/workbook designed for elementary and middle school students
available from Amazon.

The two previous works "Measures Mostly Metric" and "A Metric Refresher Pack,"
both published by J. Weston Walch 20 years ago, are out-of-print, but still available
online at highly inflated prices.

I have worked as a designer (Bantam Books, NY) and as a copywriter, art director,
and creative director in various advertising agencies. Occasionally, a book illustration
project comes my way.
