Book, Jacket, and Journal Show
Since 1965, the AAUP 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 AAUP member publishers. Every autumn the call-for-entries is distributed, and each January, the jurors gather in AAUP'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 the AAUP Annual Meeting, then begins traveling to exhibits around North America.
