An Album of Artist's Drawings



Book designers and publishers entered nearly 800 book and cover designs from 40 countries. After careful and considered review, the jury—consisting of Rodrigo Corral, Carin Goldberg, Maricris Herrera, and Jessica Helfand (chair)—recognized submissions that successfully demonstrate design excellence in book and cover design.

AIGA and Design Observer are committed to finding the most effective means of bringing book design to the attention of designers and the public. Online, the selections become a part of a permanent, accessible, and historic collection of notable graphic design—the AIGA Design Archives—additionally, each piece will be published on Design Observer.

The books, which are exemplars of the craft and effect of good design, will become part of the AIGA collection at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Columbia University’s Butler Library and at the Robert Haas Arts Library at Yale University.
