THNOC publication wins two awards from SEMC
"Furnishing Louisiana: Creole and Acadian Furniture, 1735-1835"
recognized with Gold Award and Best in Show Award

October 2011 | New Orleans, LA -"Furnishing Louisiana: Creole and Acadian Furniture, 1735-1835," published by The Historic New Orleans Collection, has been recognized by the Southeastern Museums Conference's 23rd Annual Publication Design Competition with a Gold Award in the Books and Catalogues category, as well as the Best in Show award.

The SEMC Publication Design Competition began in 1988 to recognize and reward excellence in graphic design in southeastern museum publications. The competition encourages communication, effective design, creativity and pride of work, and recognition of institutional image and identity. Awards were presented at SEMC's annual meeting on Oct. 26, in Greenville, S.C.

Designed by Tana Coman, "Furnishing Louisiana" features more than 1,200 full-color images, including several by Louisiana photographer Jim Zietz, and presents a comprehensive catalogue of furniture forms produced in the upper and lower Mississippi River valley. The book also offers contextual essays on cabinetmakers, hardware, woods, inlay, the import trade at the Port of New Orleans and the interior of the early Louisiana home, written by Jack D. Holden, H. Parrott Bacot and Cybèle T. Gontar, with Brian J. Costello and Francis J. Puig.

"Furnishing Louisiana" is the first major study of its kind and The Historic New Orleans Collection's most ambitious book project to date. The book is available for purchase at The Shop at The Collection, www.hnoc.org or (504) 598-7147; at independent booksellers nationwide; and through major online retailers. Retail price is $95 plus tax.

Editor's Note:

  • Images from "Furnishing Louisiana" are available upon request for members of the media. Please contact Anne Robichaux (anner@hnoc.org or (504) 598-7137) for digital files.
