A stunning new book by Christina Aguglia that combines poetry and illustrations has won a Pulitzer Prize.
The title is Staggering Beauties, by Aguglielas, which features beautiful drawings of landscapes and landscapes and more landscapes.
It was the first book to win the prize in its category, which honors books that “have exceptional and singular literary merit.”
The prize’s winners will be announced on Jan. 6, and winners will receive $100,000.
The Pulitzer Prize has been awarded since 1946 for books that have an “incisive, profound, or important public-service purpose,” according to the National Book Foundation.
It has been presented in five categories: classics, memoirs, memoir-as-poetry, short fiction and nonfiction.
The awards, given to books published in the United States since 1937, are intended to promote “a better understanding of human nature and how the human mind works,” according a press release.
“We have never had such an extraordinary opportunity to be nominated for a Pulitzer Award for a book that is both beautiful and powerful,” Aguglie said in a statement.
“My book is a powerful reminder that there are beautiful things in the world and I hope that you read it, too.”
Aguileras, whose work has also appeared in The New Yorker and in The Guardian, will be the first American author to win a Pulitzer since Charles Dickens won in 1936 for his novel The Wind in the Willows.
She’s also the first to win two awards in one category.
