Gold Ink Awards
The Children’s Books category was particularly competitive, but judges found “The Human Body” to be the group’s superior piece. Manufactured by C&C Joint Printing Co. on a Heidelberg press, the book is highlighted by an insert depicting an amniotic sac. “All elements [of ‘The Human Body’] work together to create a solid package,” comments Marianne Koszorus, a veteran Gold Ink judge, and director of layout and design for National Geographic Books. “The amniotic-sac element is unique and effective, and the manufacturing is nearly flawless.”
“In celebrating the 21 years of the Gold Ink Awards, we pay homage to all of the magnificent entries we receive every year that make this event the key competition in the industry,” says Mark Hertzog, vice president/group publisher of Book Business and Publishing Executive magazines. “We were again impressed by the quality and the superiority of the submissions, and we look forward to many more years of recognizing the publishers and printers who produce the finest books in the world.”
The staff of Book Business would like to extend its congratulations to the many printers and publishers recognized for their fine work in this year’s competition, and to again thank all of the judges and entrants who have made the 21-year-old Gold Ink Awards the industry’s most prestigious print competition.
