On October 20th, 2008, the Lucie Awards were presented in NYC.
And of course the catagory of interest to us was the Book Publisher catagory. And the results are (drum roll, please):
BOOK PUBLISHER OF THE YEAR – And the winner is 21st Editions | Jamie Baldridge – The Everywhere Chronicles Presented by Amy Arbus, Photographer
Other nominees were:
Aperture | – Richard Misrach – On The Beach
Chronicle Books | Manuel Alvarez Bravo – Photopoetry
Nazraeli Press | Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao – Habitat 7
Powerhouse Books | Helen Levitt – Helen Levitt
Steidl & The Robert Frank Project | Robert Frank – The Americans
We do get some internal kudos for reviewing the Robert Frank – The Americans earlier this year. So now to see what I can do about finding some review copies of the remainder of this short list.
