Press Release: March 2019

Whether you’re a librarian, a bookseller, or just a general lover of books, you know that independent presses and authors are publishing some of the most innovative, creative, and beautiful books. To honor the very best of indie publishing each year, we’re pleased to host the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards!

Thousands of books are entered each year, and our panel of over 120 librarians and booksellers take part in the judging, narrowing it down to a group of finalists and winners that represent the best books, all independently published, in over 60 categories.


Cultures in Transition (published by True North Editions) was selected in the Adult NonFictions, Photography category. Cultures in Transition is in really good company with other amazing books, such as Anne Brigmann (Publisher Rizzoli Electa), Animal Kingdom (Publisher Welcome Books), Edward Weston (Publisher MFA Publications), Jimmy Nelson Homage to Humanity (Publisher Rizzoli), and a few others.

Winners will be announced in June, 2019
