Libraries’ SU Press Exhibit Featuring Association of University Press’ Book, Jacket and Journal Show Winners

Syracuse University Libraries’ SU Press is featuring an exhibit on the first floor of Bird Library from January 21 – 30, 2020 with Association of University Press’ Book, Jacket and Journal 2019 award winners. The annual Association of University Press’ Book, Jacket, and Journal Show recognizes achievement in 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.
