The Historians of British Art annually awards prizes to outstanding books on the history of British art, architecture, and visual culture. We are pleased to announce that we will consider books in four categories: Pre-1600, 1600–1800, Post-1800, and multi-authored volume.
The 2020 Book Award winners can be found here. Previous winners can be found in the drop-down menu above.
In 2021, we will be considering books published in 2019. The committee accepts nominations and self-nominations, although these should include publisher contact details. There is no limit on the number of books from a single publisher that may be considered in each category. Winners will be announced in January 2020, in advance of the annual meeting of the College Art Association in February, so that publishers can market prize-winners there. Feel free to contact Matthew Reeve, the committee chair, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Publishers should notify the chair of their nominations and send a copy of each nominated book to our four committee members:
