Winner Description: 
illustrated by Christopher Bing, written by Ernest Thayer and published by Handprint
Winner Blurb: 

The immortal ballad of Ernest Thayer finds new life through Christopher Bing's innovative treatment. Pen and ink scratchboard "engravings" in late 19th-century style are seamlessly blended with memorabilia and trompe l'oeil recreations in an homage to the great American pastime.

"Using the latest technological applications, Bing has firmly placed Thayer's poem in its own historic era. Layering the illustrations with detailed contextual background and a confident, even cocky depiction of Casey, Bing brings the world of the Mudville Nine to life for a new generation," said Rockman.
