New praise for Helvetica and the New York City Subway

Helvetica and the New York City Subway System has been awarded an Honorable Mention at the 2011 American Publishers Award for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (PROSE Award) in the Architecture & Urban Planning category by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP). The PROSE Awards annually recognize the very best in professional and scholarly publishing by bringing attention to distinguished books, journals, and electronic content in over forty categories. Judged by peer publishers, librarians, and medical professionals since 1976, the awards are extraordinary for their breadth and depth. Blue Pencil is gratified that the AAP has honored Helvetica and the New York City Subway. It is further evidence that the book continues to resonate beyond the narrow confines of the graphic design profession.
