Treasured Lands wins IPPY and IBPA Ben Franklin book awards
« on: April 16, 2017, 02:43:34 PM »

I am honored that "Treasured Lands" has won not one, but two of the most respected book award competitions in the independent publishing world: http://www.terragalleria.com/blog/treasured-lands-wins-ippy-and-ibpa-ben-franklin-book-awards/

"Treasured Lands" won the Gold Medal for the category "Coffee Table Books" in the 2017 Independent Publisher Awards. The "IPPY", as it is known in the book publishing industry for 20+ years, is the world's largest book awards competition, with more than 5,000 entrants.

"Treasured Lands" won the Gold Medal for the category “Arts and Photography” in the 2017 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards. Administered by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), for nearly 30 years, the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards have been regarded as one of the highest national honors for small and independent publishers.

My series "A quick guide to photography" published on this site should give you a good idea of the contents of the book, but keep in mind that the text represents less than 20% of the total real estate. You can see some spreads at http://treasuredlandsbook.com, and note that Amazon currently has the book at an incredible 50% discount: http://qtl.us/trla-amzn

Well deserved, QT.

I offer my hearty congratulations. Your work on the National Parks goes way beyond the conventional and the "obvious" scenes in each park.

Especially for a 20+ year project, right?

I've just updated birthday in profile :-)
