As we settle into 2012, hard at work to make our recent and upcoming releases financially successful and critically acclaimed, several smaller publishers are still basking in the recognition from year-end roundups of “best” books.

The New York Times“notable books” lists for 2011 includes several titles from independent presses, and IBPA members are among them.

Its “100 Notable Books of 2011” cites Other Press’s Seven Years, written by Peter Stamm, whom the Times calls one of Europe’s most exciting writers, and translated by Michael Hofmann. Its “Holiday Books: Visuals” showcases Fox Chapel’s Labeling America: Popular Culture on Cigar Box Labels by John Grossman, who describes the output of a family-owned printing company that was run by four successive generations of men named George Schlegel. And its “Music Chronicle” praises Continuum’s Amazing Grace by Aaron Cohen for its analysis of Aretha Franklin’s methodology.
