The newest exhibit from University Archives and Special Collections celebrates the Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada. The exhibit, located in the Link Gallery in the Murray Library and curated by David Bindle, is a selection showcasing some of the most recent winners of the Alcuin Society Book Design Awards.
Since 1981, the Alcuin Society has sponsored the oldest national competition that recognizes and celebrates fine book design in Canada, and the Robert A. Reid Award and Medal to recognize lifetime achievement or extraordinary contributions to the book arts in Canada. The Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada is the only national competition for book design.
Winners and runners-up from previous years are also featured in the exhibit, which will be on display throughout July and August.
