Libraries’ SU Press Exhibition Features Association of University Presses’ Book, Jacket and Journal Show Winners
Syracuse University Libraries’ SU Press is featuring an exhibition on the first floor of Bird Library from Jan. 21-30 with Association of University Presses’ Book, Jacket and Journal 2019 award winners.
The annual Association of University Presses’ Book, Jacket and Journal Show recognizes achievement in the design, production and manufacture of books and journals by the university press community. It also serves as a focus of discussion and a source of ideas for intelligent, creative and resourceful bookmaking.
The show is a juried design competition, open only to Association of University Presses member publishers, of which SU Press is a member. Award-winning books are displayed in a traveling exhibit at member presses around the country.
SU Press has received several design awards in the past, most recently for the books “Women in Korean Zen: Lives and Practices” by Martine Batchelor and Son’gyong Sunim in 2007 and “The Adirondack Atlas: A Geographic Portrait of the Adirondack Park” by Jerry Jenkins in 2005.
