Good News Comes in Threes from Foundation for Landscape Studies

Hot on the heels of the Foundation for Landscape Studies announcement that a forthcoming Penn Press book will receive a David Coffin Publication Grant, we learned today two of our books won the Foundation's John Brinckerhoff Jackson Book Prize.

Karen M'Closkey received the Coffin Publication Grant for her work-in-progress Unearthed: The Landscapes of Hargreaves Associates. The Press plans to publish Unearthed  in 2013.

Both A Life Spent Changing Places by the late Lawrence Halprin with a foreword by Laurie Olin and Flora's Empire: British Gardens in India by Eugenia W. Herbert received the 2012 John Brinckerhoff Jackson Book Prize, which rewards "contributors to the intellectual vitality of garden history and landscape studies."

Congratulations to M'Closkey, Olin, and Herbert for earning these honors in landscape studies. Naturally, we are proud to publish their work.
