Whitechapel Gallery London Art Book Fair 2013 Pt.2
Hurrah hurrah hurrah.
My beloved MSDA has gone and won the Birgit Skiöld Memorial Trust Award of Excellence for her beautiful latest book "Al-Mutanabbi Street: A Vicious Circle".
The best thing that happened all weekend, of course, and richly-deserved.
The book will now be added to the National Art Collection at the word & Image Department of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Her previous edition, the breath-taking "Steam, Salt, Milk" won this award a couple of years ago.
Here's a screensnap from the Whitechapel twittery page to mark the occasion.
