We got some great news yesterday. The American Association of Museums (AAM) runs a publications design competition every year, and while we always enter, we rarely come away with anything (2004 honorable mentions for Enchanting Modern: Ilonka Karasz and Armin Landeck and another in 2001 for Essence of Place, most recently). This year, however, we've snagged an honorable mention in the category of "Supplementary materials" (e.g., brochures) for our booklet that accompanied the exhibition Devotional Prints from Germany and the Netherlands, the cover for which is pictured above. AAM hasn't yet posted the full list of winners, but will soon. We thank Giancarlo Fiorenza, our former Pierre Daura Curator of European Art, for organizing the exhibition and writing wonderful text; Scott Sosebee, our graphic designer (and a former Athenian), for doing such a fabulous job, especially with that cover, which really captured the intimacy of the show; and University Printing, for making our vision reality. We don't have many copies left of the booklet, but if we can get a pdf up on Issuu, we'll post it here.
