Traverse City, Mich. — The 18th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards have been announced and Marilyn Moss’ “Bill Moss: Fabric Artist & Designer” has won a silver IPPY award in the category of Regional Northeast Nonfiction.

The Camden author’s book traces the life and work of one of America’s most innovative fabric artists and designers and a true pioneer in the creation of tension fabric structures.

"No one epitomizes the notions of ‘Yankee ingenuity’ and the creative explosion of the ‘60s and ‘70s more than Bill Moss. This lovely book captures his career in detail and with a style that matches his brilliant designs," said Jim Barnes, director of the awards.

Launched in 1996 and conducted each year to honor the year's best independently published books, the IPPY Awards recognize merit in a broad range of subjects and reward authors and publishers who "take chances and break new ground." The medal-winning books will be celebrated Wednesday, May 28, during the annual BookExpo America publishing convention in New York City, with gold, silver and bronze IPPY medallions awarded in 78 national, 22 regional and 10 e-book categories. This year’s contest drew more than 5,600 entries from authors and publishers in all 50 states, nine Canadian provinces and 32 countries overseas.
