August 10, 2016 — 

The Alcuin Society has announced the winners of its 34th annual competition, The Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada.  Ainsley Johnston and Amanda Austin,  took home 2nd prize in the Prose non-fiction Illustrated category for their work as designers and editors of the Warehouse Journal, Vol. 24.

Warehouse is an annual journal that is devoted to the critical pursuit of design discourse and the greater application to various collective communities. The journal attempts to reflect, engage and extend the ideas inherent within the various departments that fall within the interdisciplinary vision of the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba.

The Alcuin Society  is a Vancouver based non-profit society for the support and appreciation of fine books. In addition to the annual book design competition, the Society publishes a journal, Amphora, and organizes lectures, workshops, exhibitions, and field visits on various aspects of the book.

This year, the winning books will be entered in the international book design competition in Leipzig, Germany in February 2017. They will be exhibited in Germany at the Frankfurt and Leipzig Book Fairs; in Japan, at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, in conjunction with the Tokyo International Book Fair; and in every province of Canada. This year’s judges, Teresa Bubela, Denise Lapointe, and Paul Roelofs, selected 43 winning titles from 230 entries, from 9 provinces and 99 publishers.
