History
Spanish term or phrase: Libro de Prestigio
In the sentence prior to this, a list of insitutions who have recognised this musem is given, I think the Libro de presitgio refers to this, although I can't be 100% sure.
I think I need a work-around; I think the literal translation will be useless in this case.

"Prestige book"


Explanation:
I've found several Google entries of this.

I think the translation is according to the Castilian meaning of "libro de prestigio": "El libro de prestigio es la mejor solución para ofrecer información concreta sobre la entidad o sobre aspectos específicos de esta (conmemoraciones, informes de resultados, presentaciones de productos, etc.). Por su carácter a la vez tradicional e innovador, que combina imagen, diseño y texto, constituye una forma atractiva y eficiente de expandir la imagen de la organización o de sus actividades y servicios, transmitiendo al usuario la información de una forma clara, completa y eficaz."

See the references.

Asker: thanks for your help, prestige book isnt quite what I am looking for. this is like a Guggenheim book, or a MOMA book, but not for a special date and not a collector's book. I may reask this later when I have more information. Thanks again.

1) Collector's Edition.

Asker: I believe this is more like, "starting from this prestigious list of supporters" ... something like that. But it's still a wide open book at this point. Thanks :)

Asker: I think you may be close to the mark now, I think a am translating the forward for this "libro"

Asker: I almost went with promotional book, but I think there must be a better term out there. thanks for your help, this is like a Guggenheim book, or a MOMA book, but not for a special date and not a collector's book (I almost used that too, but not really for collecting). I may reask this later when I have more information. Thanks again.

Organizational Profile


Explanation:
I think that Eloys interpretation is most convincing with the context that you have provided; it makes some sense of the sentence. But I have not seen 'Prestige Book' anywhere in English.

Here are a couple of terms that I have actually heard in English (USA), for your consideration.
'Organizational Profile ' would derive from the common 'Corporate Profile', which fits the description in Eloys refs to a "T".
I suggest also, 'Organization Portfolio' for the museum. I am using 'organization' here with the assumption that the museum is a non-profit or governmental entity. If that is not true in your context, then 'corporate' may be appropriate.

Ahhh; thanks for the clarification. I might suggest 'special-edition brochure'. It does not fit your explanation in the query about a simple "mention" of the museum in the book, but it seems to fit the context of the query quotation. The brochure is intended to spark the readers imagination and prior historical knowledge to encourage him to investigate the displays in the museum. (This quote is artfully written in Spanish, by the way. I like it!)

Asker: All the prestige books are for stamp collecting! This is more like a guggenheim book or a moma book, but not a collector's book and not to mark some anniversary.
