All Day AUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show for 2018 (Multi-Day Event)

Wilfrid Laurier University Press and the Robert Langen Gallery present an exhibit of the Association of University Presses Book, Jacket, and Journal Travelling Show from April 15 to 26. Drop in to see design-award-winning books and covers any time during gallery hours.

Since 1965, the AU Presses 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.

The Book, Jacket, and Journal Show is a juried design competition, open only to member publishers. Each January, the jurors gather in the Association'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.

The annual Book, Jacket, and Journal Show exhibit premieres at our Annual Meeting, then begins traveling to exhibits around North America—and sometimes around the globe. The annual catalog is a treasured design reference.

For more information about the show, please visit the AUP website.
