Tyndale House Publishers’ “Hinds’ Feet on
High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey” awarded
Top Shelf Award for design from ECPA

CAROL STREAM, ILL (November 9, 2018) – The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) has recognized the reimagining of Hinds’ Feet on High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey by Hannah Hurnard as a recipient of the 2018 Top Shelf Book Cover Award. ECPA announced the winners of the 2018 Top Shelf Book Cover Award earlier this week at Lipscomb University during the opening session of ECPA PubU.  ECPA’s Stan Jantz and Pete Peterson, of Nashville-based The Rabbit Room, announced the winning covers among 225 Christian publishing professionals gathered for the event. The book was released by Tyndale House Publishers (@TyndaleHouse) as part of its Living Expressions Collection in November 2017. (Each winning cover may be viewed at comments made by judges and designers.)

“Hinds’ Feet on High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey is an exceptional work-of-art in its own right,” said Becky Brandvik, Sr. Director, Tyndale Gift & Specialty.  “Tyndale’s team of designers and illustrators did an excellent job of reimagining Hannah Hurnard’s literary classic using watercolor paintings, woodland-themed Scripture art, and antique-tinted photography.  Hinds’ Feet on High Places is a story of endurance, persistence, and reliance on God.  This special edition of the book, which is the first release in a series of visual journeys, becomes a canvas on which the reader can chronicle the struggles and triumphs of her own personal story.  Hinds’ Feet on High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey is part of Tyndale’s Living Expressions Collection, a gift line that invites readers to explore God’s Word and express their creativity in ways that are refreshing to the spirit and restorative to the soul.”

Members of the design team that worked on the project include Jen Phelps (designer), Jill De Haan and Rachel McNaughton (illustrators), as well as Jennifer Ghionzoli (art director).
