Concordia University Press and the Concordia University Library are pleased to showcase the 2023 AUPresses Book, Jacket, and Journal Show, representing the best book design by university press publishers.

Concordia University Press is honoured to have three of its books included in this year's show: Arthur Erickson on Learning Systems and Liz Magor's Subject to Change: Writings and Interviews are both included in the Scholarly Typographic category, and Lauren Beck's Canada's Place Names and How to Change Them is included in the Book Covers category. Our congratulations to designers Sean Yendrys, Scott Ponik, and Sébastien Aubin, OTAMI-. As a relatively new publisher, with our first book, Ken Lum's Everything is Relevant: Writings on Art and Life, 1991-2018 (also a Scholarly Typographic winner) appearing in 2020, we are proud to be included among the best design in our industry and among our esteemed peers.

If you would like to flip through these books, please visit us on January 31 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the 4TH Space. We will be releasing these books from their display cases and hosting a free and public event. Join us for a discussion about excellence in book design with award-winning designers and publishing colleagues from McGill-Queen's University Press.
