— Australian Book Design Awards

The shortlist for the Australian Book Design Awards has been announced.

 

The Book Design Awards are Australia’s longest running  graphic design awards, but in 2013 the Australian Publishing Association decided to discontinue them. To keep the awards running for a 62nd consecutive year, a group of Australian designers formed the ABDA as an independent, non-profit entity in March 2014.

 

There is some lovely work up for this years awards, and you can download full a list of the nominees as a PDF. Here are a few of the book covers that caught my eye:

 

Letters to the End of Love by Yvette Walker; design by Allison Colpoys (UQP July 13, 2014)

 

The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton; design by Jenny Grigg (Granta September 2013)

 

Madness: A Memoir by Kate Richards; design by Allison Colpoys (Viking January 2013)

 

The Messenger by Markus Zusak; design by Sandy Cull (Pan Macmillan Novemeber 2013)
