The J.M. Kaplan Fund Accepting Nominations of Illustrated Nonfiction Books for Alice Award.
The J.M. Kaplan Fund, established in 2013 by President Joan K. Davidson an illustrated book collector, is accepting nominations from illustrated nonfiction books. The award is intended to buttress the kind of slow reading movement that recognizes and cherishes the lasting values of the well-made illustrated book and the special senses of intimacy such a book affords. Books focused on the fine arts, the natural and built environments, and related public issues will be considered.
