Michelle Warren Wins Sharp Book History Prize Award

SHARP Book History Book Prize


Each year, SHARP recognizes the best book published on any aspect of the creation, dissemination, or uses of script or print with a US$1,000 award to its author.

Begun in 1997, with the origin of SHARP itself, the prize was supported from 2004 through 2022 with support from the DeLong family and was known as the George A. and Jeanne S. DeLong Book History Book Prize. The award is now supported by SHARP's funds and continues to recognize outstanding work published in our field as the SHARP Book History Book Prize.

Publishers are invited to nominate books in or related to the field of book history. All submissions must be in English and must have been copyrighted in 2022. (Translations of works originally copyrighted earlier are eligible, but the translations themselves must have been copyrighted in 2022.) Because the purpose of the prize is to honor the work of an individual scholar or of scholars working closely together writing a jointly-authored monograph, collections of essays, reference works, bibliographies, and other collaborative projects are not eligible and will not be considered.
