Bruce Davidson: Central Park in Platinum
Verso Limited Editions, an imprint of Santa Barbara-based Serbin Communications, Inc. has been awarded the prestigious 2009 Lucie Award for Book Publisher of the year for their publication of Bruce Davidson: Central Park in Platinum, which I had earlier reviewed here.
From the press release: Renowned portrait photographer Joyce Tenneson presented the award to Glen Serbin, President of Verso Limited Editions on October 19th at the 7th Annual Lucie Awards, a gala black-tie ceremony held at New York’s Lincoln Center.
