UC Press is proud to announce that Infinite Cities: A Trilogy of Atlases – San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, edited by Rebecca Solnit, Rebecca Snedecker, and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro, is shortlisted for the 2020 Alice Award.

The annual $25,000 Alice Award, inaugurated in 2013 and administered by Furthermore grants in publishing, is given to a book publisher that represents excellence in all aspects of the work, from idea to design to quality of production.  Books short listed for the Alice award are each given $5,000.

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 sense of intimacy it affords. Fields considered include the fine arts and the natural and built environments and related public issues.

The recipient of the 2020 Alice Award will be announced at a virtual event hosted by the Strand Book Store on Monday, November 9th, that will be viewable on the Furthermore website.
