This year I had the great honor to design the 2010 Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada catalog.
The awards are held yearly by the Alcuin society. This year I desinged the catalog, next to the design I also photographed the images used to seperate the different chapters.
I spend hours on the beach shooting, books, type and typographic meters and other print related material.
Designing the cataloge was quite a bit of work but working with a great team made it, a fun project, despite many late night hours.
I had great editors & translator who delivered perfect manuscrip and had a sharp eye for any possible mistakes.
The pictures of the books were shot by CoastImagingArts – with a mind boggling quality.
The catalog will now travel across Canada acompaying the book, eventually the exhibition will travel to Tokyo and later the Frankfurt and Leipzig book fair.
I will post a link once the Alcuin society will present the catalog on their web site.
