Object of Devotion Catalogue Wins Second Place in the Washington Book Publishers Association Design and Effectiveness Awards

June 8, 2011 

ASI's current exhibition "Object of Devotion: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum," which will appear next at the Tyler Museum of Art in Texas, has won accolades from the Washington Book Publishers Association for its scholarly catalogue. The 224-page all-color book was awarded second place in the Book Design and Effectiveness competition in the Illustrated Text category for small-to medium-sized non-profit publishers. Designed by Lynne Komai of the Watermark Design office in Alexandria, Virginia, the catalogue competed against several Washington  museums to secure the second place award.

In addition to a lead essay by Dr. Paul Williamson, FSA, Guest Curator of the exhibition and Director of Collections and Keeper of Scultpure, Metalwork and Glass at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the book also includes contributions by Fergus Cannan, Professor Paul Stephen Perkinson and Professor Eamon Duffy. 

The exhibition will tour until 2013 and has bookings available. Copies of the catalogue can be purchased in hosting museums and on ASI's website.
