 The PubWest Book Design Awards recognize superior design and outstanding production quality of books, e-books and book mobile apps in 23 categories, as well as an overall Judges’ Choice Award selected from among the winners in each of those categories.

The Design Awards winners were judged on typography, jacket and cover design, interior design, format, selection of materials used, and printing and binding production quality.

PubWest president Zoe Katherine Burke lauds the winners and says that “the art of the book is vitally important. Through appropriate binding and paper choices, graceful layout, and elegant, appropriate typography, words and images impact the reader in subtle but significant ways. Reading becomes pleasurable to the eye as well as the mind; photographs and artworks become places for sustained reflection.”

The winner of this year’s Judges’ Choice Award is Eatymology, a beautifully designed, humorous guide to modern food culture from Sourcebooks. For winning the Judges’ Choice Award, Sourcebooks will receive one free registration to PubWest 2017.

Winners will also be recognized at the 2017 PubWest Conference to be held February 9-11 in Portland, Oregon at the Benson Hotel. Contact PubWest for more information about the 2017 conference.

PubWest is a not-for-profit trade organization created to serve the needs of its members and as a forum for the discussion of publishing issues. The association’s membership ranges from small independent presses to publishers with worldwide operations. Affiliate members include printers, designers, binderies and publishing freelancers. Membership is based throughout North America.
