We are excited to announce that Anatomy 360: The Ultimate Guide to the Human Body has been given a Gold Award in Reference in ForeWord’s 2011 Book of the Year Awards. Released in the fall of 2011. Anatomy 360 is a top-selling reference book that depicts the human body in its entirety—from the skin to the muscles to the organs to the bones. With detailed pictures and vivid explanations, this stunning book provides a unique perspective on our most crucial parts, showing how the structures of our bodies influence their functions.
ForeWord‘s Book of the Year Awards program is designed for booksellers and librarians to share in the process of discovering distinctive books across a number of genres with judgments based on their own authority and on patron interests. The 2011 Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention Award Winners were announced on June 23 at the ALA Annual Meeting in Anaheim.
“We are thrilled and honored by the award given to Anatomy 360,” said Peter Norton, Publisher Thunder Bay Press. “We had a vision to create an anatomy book that balanced the art and the science of the human body. An anatomy book that appealed to everyone from academics to art aficionados. The amazingly detailed images, rendered from almost limitless perspectives, differentiate this visual celebration. We are extremely excited to see that this book is being recognized for its beautiful and ambitious nature.”
