The Art Book Prize update

The Art Book Prize in London has narrowed its field of finalists to two books: Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo by Nicholas de Monchaux and Helvetica and the New York City Subway System: The True (Maybe) Story by myself (both published by MIT Press). The winner will be announced by The Authors’ Club on Thursday, November 22nd at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London. I doubt I will be there, but if any British friends have a chance to stop in at the gallery at 16 Wharf Road, root for the subway to beat the space suit.

Update: The folks at MIT Press have told me that the November 22nd ceremony has been postponed until sometime in January due, in the words of the Art Book Prize organizers, to “the unavailability of key people”.  Whatever that means.
