NEW YORK—July 13, 2017

Today AIGA, the professional association for design, and Design Observerannounced the results of “50 Books | 50 Covers” of 2016. Book designers and publishers entered nearly 700 book and cover designs from more than 23 countries.

After careful and considered review, the jury—consisting of Gail Anderson, Michael Carabetta, and Jessica Helfand—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. Michael Carabetta, who has previously juried the competition, noted after a full day of reviewing entries that the final books selected were excellent “not only in design—[but] in production; in paper, mixing coated and uncoated… People are getting into the real, physical qualities of the book.” Online, the selections become a part of a permanent, accessible, and historic collection of notable graphic design—the AIGA Design Archives—additionally, each piece is 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.
