New York Rights Fair Honors Visual Books

Publishers Weekly, in conjunction with BolognaFiere and Combined Book Exhibit, organized New York Rights Fair (an international rights and licensing marketplace).

In an article by Calvin Reid on May 8, 2018, in Publishers Weekly they announced the winning titles from their inaugural competition Talking Pictures:Selected Books which honors excellence in visual books.

You can find the list below and on New York Rights Fair's website as well as sign up for the symposium in Manhattan. The article is not too lengthy and gives some great information. I recommend reading it.

Anyway, I was so excited to see the list and see the stunning visuals so worthy of this award. Not to be. It is just a list. So, for your viewing pleasure, I have added the book covers. Do you have a favorite? And did you want to spend hours perusing through the pages between the covers? I did.
