Highlights from the AUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show
For their annual Book, Jacket, and Journal Show, the Association of University Presses brings together outstanding examples of book design from across the university press community, highlighting selections ranging from colorful art books to scholarly tomes.
Our very own University of Chicago Press titles are featured in several of the categories presented in the show, a testament to the skills of our in-house and freelance designers. Reflecting on UCP’s design program and this year’s featured books, Jill Shimabukuro, Director of Design and Production at the Press says: “The AUPresses Book, Jacket, and Journal show is one of the few, remaining competitions that celebrate book design and typography. I am delighted that, with this year’s selections, Chicago continues a legacy of design excellence dating back to the 1960s.”
In this post, we invite you to take a peek at some of these amazing book designs.
