The award is granted to four first-time NYABF exhibitors (artists, artists’ book publishers, or collectives) in the early stages of their career. The inaugural year winners are backbonebooks, Ian Giles, MonoRhetorik, and Sming Sming Books. Thanks to Printed Matter for their support. I  still remember when Shannon walked to my table and invited me to the  NYABF – it was ten years ago. At that time I didn’t know who he was – years later I found out all what he have done to support artists and publishers around the world. This time I will honor his legacy and hopefully share why books and publishing is so relevant. Thank you Printed Matter for the kind support. I wont let you down! – Excited to share what Ive been doing since 2011 with all of you! – sincerely, Claudia. —>
