Last week we learned that one of SUP’s digital projects has won a PROSE Award. Massimo Riva’s Shadow Plays: Virtual Realities in an Analog World, published in June of 2022, has won the Association of American Publishers’ 2023 PROSE Award for eProducts. This project was unique in its development in that, in addition to our normal collaborative workflows with the author, we also had the opportunity to work closely with the folks at Brown Center for Digital Scholarship, who were overseeing the design of the project and working closely with the author to ensure that what was delivered to the Press for production was in top shape. Having such a skilled group of collaborators has in many ways made for smoother than typical editorial, production, publishing, marketing, and archiving processes. It’s a model worth repeating, and the award corroborates the benefits of a collegial and innovative team supporting the research and writing of an eloquent author. (Read Brown’s press release on the award here.)
While we’re very pleased to have been able to help such an innovative digital project into the world, we’re also very proud of previous projects that have deservedly garnered accolades over the years. And since we haven’t done individual posts for each of those, we’re taking the opportunity to list them out here:
