The 2014 Paul Revere Awards for Graphic Excellence were announced during the 2014 annual meeting of the Music Publishers Association on June 6 in New York City. The awards are named in honor of Paul Revere, who was, in addition to being a Revolutionary War-era hero, one of America’s earliest printers.

(Bolcom also previously drew his own cover art for the 1985 publication of his Second Violin Sonata.) Marks Music also won 2nd Prize in the category of Choral Music Engraving for William Bolcom’s Satires, engraved and designed by Evan Hause, and also published by Hal Leonard.

The awards are for publications between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, and were judged by a panel of experts.
