RMP in the New England Book Show!

For the fourth year in a row, one of our book designs has won a place of honor in the Bookbuilders of Boston New England Book Show. This year's winner, The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Prose Poetry, was rated Best of Category in the Professional, Non-illustrated category. Check out all of the results here! Congratulations to Rose Metal Press head designer Rebecca Saraceno, who designed the Field Guide and all three of our previous winners!

Past RMP winners in the New England Book Show are three of our chapbooks with letterpressed covers and specialty endpapers: The Sky Is a Well, In the Land of the Free, and How Some People Like Their Eggs. The Sky Is a Well and How Some People Like Their Eggs are sold out, but you can buy these chapbooks as part of A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness and They Could No Longer Contain Themselves, respectively.

All three of our 2010 books were on display at the NE Book Show in Boston (The Field Guide to Prose Poetry and We Know What We Are, designed by Rebecca Saraceno, and Color Plates, designed by Melissa Gruntkosky) and both designers were able to attend. Photos below. Congrats and thanks to all of our designers for their amazing work! We couldn't do it without you!
