Judging A Book By Its Cover

December 6, 2010

Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York, The Beats

After careful and considered review of more than 800 entries, the 2010 jury of the “AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers” competition selected a group of 100 examples of outstanding book and book cover design produced in 2009.

The jury’s selections will be mounted as a public exhibition at the AIGA National Design Center in New York in December 2010, and will travel across the country to AIGA chapters and student groups during 2011. In addition, selections become part of the AIGA Design Archives, are documented in 365: AIGA Year In Design, and the physical artifacts join the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum and the Rare Book and Manuscript Library within Columbia University’s Butler Library.

Here are some of my favorites from among the winners.

Sagmeister Inc., New York, Oubey Mindkiss

Gabriele Wilson Design, New York, The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson

Little, Brown and Company, New York, The Four Fingers of Death
