Beverly Hills, CA, April 24, 2013 --(PR.com)-- PTC Carousels Wins 2013 Beverly Hills Book Award

The Beverly Hills Book Awards (BHBA) announced on April 15 that PTC Carousels: The History of Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousels (2012), by Richard A. Gardner and published by The Connecticut Press of Monroe, CT, has been named the top award-winner for History and Coffee Table books. The award is another in a growing list of accolades for what is being called the best book ever written on this venerable Philadelphia-based amusement company.

“We are proud to be the publisher of PTC Carousels, which now joins our other award-winning American history titles,” says Peter J. Malia, principal at The Connecticut Press. “This book epitomizes what The Connecticut Press is all about: excellent history that is beautifully presented and meant to last.” The press was founded by Malia in 2009 and offers a growing list of history, photography, decorative arts, and select children’s titles.

According to BHBA spokesperson Fred Klein, former vice president of Bantam Books, the awards celebrate excellence in presentation, from cover and interior design, promotional text, aesthetic components, and other factors that demonstrate outstanding presentation, in addition to the writing.

“After decades in the publishing industry and listening to our colleagues talk about the ever-growing challenges when promoting books, we decided that there were so many books being done well we wanted to celebrate the physical book that has always and will always be a part of American culture,” says Ellen Reid, president of Smarketing and sponsor of the Beverly Hills Book Awards.
