"Carving Grand Canyon" Wins Design Award with PubWest

On June 5, 2013, the 2nd edition of "Carving Grand Canyon" won a Bronze award (third place) with the trade organization PubWest for superior design in the category of Academic/Non-Trade. The awards were announced yesterday and you can view the winners in each category here.

Here is a listing of the award winners in the category of Academic/Non-Trade:
  • "Atomic Comics: Cartoonist Confront the Nuclear World"  University of Nevada Press (Gold winner)
  • "The Menial Art of Cooking" University Press of Colorado (Silver winner)
  • "Carving Grand Canyon: Evidence, Theories, and Mystery" 2nd Edition Grand Canyon Association (Bronze winner) 
I would like to give a special big thanks to Jami Spittler who designed the book, Faith Marcovecchio, the project manager, Bronze Black who rendered many of the drawing and maps, and Pam Frazier who helped with the copy edit and text. "Carving Grand Canyon" continues to sell well and to educate people about the many theories for how the Grand Canyon formed.
