Admirers of this art form and graphic designers alike are encouraged to pick up and examine the books to better view interior design details.

Complimentary copies of the show catalog containing design specifications and judges’ comments will be available at UPK. Judges for this year’s show included Kimberly Glyder, principal at Kimberly Glyder Design, Benjamin Shaykin, Providence-based designer and educator, Henk van Assen, founding principal of HvAD, a multidisciplinary design studio in New York City, and Daphne Geismar, who plans, designs, and produces award-winning books for art museums. The AAUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show was established in 1965 to recognize meritorious achievement and as a means for members of the Association of American University Presses to share ideas for “intelligent, creative, and resourceful bookmaking.” For more information about the University Press of Kansas, please visit their website at: UPK can also be followed in social media: • Facebook: • Twitter:; • You Tube:; • Instagram: Submitted by: Andrea Laws University Press of Kansas
