Description

The 2017 Annual AAUP Book Show

Need design inspiration? Love to talk paper choices, font selection, or just want to view and discuss (and perhaps critique?) book design with fellow book publishing professionals? Then be sure to reserve your seat now!

In partnership with the University of Minnesota Press, our annual sharing of the Association of American University Presses show is coming in January, and it is always a showcase of book design possibilities. And of course there will be catalogs for attendees!

This year’s show has 52 jackets and covers and 50 books out of over 550 entries. Plus, there are two local connections in the show this year, which is always terrific to see.


Since 1965, the AAUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show has fulfilled its mission to "honor and instruct": honoring the design and production teams whose work furthers a long tradition of excellence in book design, and—through a traveling exhibit and acclaimed annual catalog of selected entries—visually teaching the tenets of good design.

Books await judging

The Book, Jacket, and Journal Show is a juried design competition, open only to AAUP member publishers. Every autumn the call-for-entries is distributed, and each January, the jurors gather in AAUP's New York offices to examine hundreds of submissions and select the very best examples of book, journal, and cover designs. Jurors are esteemed interior and cover designers appointed by the annual show committee.


As usual, this Minnesota Bookbuilders event will include lunch for pre-registered attendees.
