The Hoover Institution Press was a winner of a certificate of excellence during the 37th annual Bookbuilders West Book Show in Oakland, California, on January 31.

The award was made in recognition of “the highest standards of book design and manufacturing” for the jacket of the book Charter Schools against the Odds: An Assessment by the Hoover Institution’s Koret Task Force on K-12 Education.

Jacket designers were Kathryn Christie and Jennifer Navarrette.

The book was published under the institution’s Education Next imprint in 2006. It was edited by Koret Task Force member Paul T. Hill.

This year, there were eight categories. The Hoover award was in the category of reference and scholarly book jackets.
