Why are there jewels on the Annual Book Award medals at Prismatic Prospects? I’m glad you asked!
I’m sure you’ve heard expressions about finding hidden gems. Just how hidden a gem may be could depend on who’s doing the looking. 😀 Still, whether a book is traditionally or independently published, whether the author is famous or lesser known, whether the book is a new release or has been around for years—whatever the case, a great book is a great book. A gem. And this bibliophile is all about sharing the literary gems she discovers.
Admittedly, I had a doubt or two as I designed the latest version of my award medals. Would including a gemstone in the center mean the medals would be, you know—less than neutral? Too feminine, or something?
Huh. Well. I reckon if even kings and queens alike go for gemstones, then, hey. 😉
