We are thrilled to say that the cover we designed last year for the book Horseshoe Crab: Biography of a Survivor was honored last night with an award from the Washington Book Publishers. The book, which we designed for our publishing arm, Ruka Press, was a winner in the annual Book Design and Effective Awards in the category Illustrated Cover, Commercial Publishers. We were competing with books from much larger publishers, including a number of our Washington museums, so it’s very exciting to be a winner.
This is the third time Sensical Design has been honored by the Washington Book Publishers, and the first time for Ruka Press. Special thanks to illustrator Leslie Prunty for her beautiful horseshoe crab painting.
