Congratulations to author Jina Bacarr and illustrator Yelena Zhavoronkova! The Japanese Art of Sex won the 2005 Benjamin Franklin Award in the category of Psychology/Self-Help. The award was announced last night (June 1) in New York City.
Named in honor of America's most cherished publisher/printer, the Benjamin Franklin Awards recognizes excellence in independent publishing. Publications, grouped by genre, are judged on editorial and design merit by top practitioners in each field. The trophies are awarded to the best books in several categories and are presented to the publishers during a gala awards ceremony on the last evening of the Publishing University (just before the opening of Book Expo America).
