Award Winner! - Hope: A Collection of Obama Posters and Prints

It's official! Hope: A Collection of Obama Posters and Prints (Zenith Press) is the winner of the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award™ in the "Political/Current Events" category. 

Research, compiled and written by Hal Elliott Wert, a professor at the Kansas City Art Institute, Hope offers a visually striking and comprehensive chronology of the posters created for Obama's historic presidential bid. Selected from the largest Obama poster collection known to exist, the 160 full-color images visually emphasize Obama's inspirational messages of change, hope, and inclusion, solidifying a campaign unlike anything ever seen in U.S. history and elevating the man behind the message to the status of cultural icon.

Awarded each year at Book Expo America from the Independent Book Publishers Association, the Benjamin Franklin Awards™ recognize "excellence in independent publishing."
