"Countless Connecting Threads" Receives NEMA Publication Award


Countless Connecting Threads: MIT's History Revealed Through Its Most Evocative Objects has been awarded Second Place in the Exhibition Catalogues category of the 2014 NEMA Publication Award Competition. It is an honor for the MIT Museum and Malcolm Grear Designers to earn this distinction from the The New England Museum Association (NEMA).

In 2011, in celebration of MIT's sesquicentennial anniversary, the MIT Museum exhibited 150 objects that chronicled MIT's development over 150 years. The museum commissioned Malcolm Grear Designers to create the visual identity for the MIT 150 Exhibition, design the exhibition, as well as the exhibition website, which provides various views and more in-depth information on each object in the exhibition. The studio was then asked to design the book, inspired by the MIT 150 Exhibition, to present the 150 objects.

The 236-page book with over 550 images., designed by Malcolm Grear Designers, was printed by Meridian Printing and bound by Acme Bookbinding.
