Good Books Well Made

This is the coat of arms of the Alcuin society, the motto is Latin for “good books well made”. The Alcuin Society recognizes excellence in book design with an annual competition. Mostly in celebration of fine books and rare letterpress productions, the chief exception being the children’s books category. All of the publishers in Canada submit their kids books to this competition, this year there was 53 titles in the running. I submitted ‘Brussels Sprouts & Unicorns’ and am pleased to report that it placed first. Thanks to Sian Pairaudeau, and Scott Hawthorn, for helping me publish this book. Also, thanks to Leah Gordon for organizing the competition.
