The Alcuin Citations Book Auction and Lunch

Each year we auction the previous year's submissions to the Alcuin Society's Competition for Excellence in Book Design in Canada; the funds raised help to finance next year's competition. This is an opportunity for some book buying bargains. Start your Christmas shopping early or buy something just for yourself, and while you're at
it, have an interesting and entertaining afternoon. You are encouraged to bring fellow book lovers, and everyone is welcome to participate in the auction even if you don't come for lunch.

This year's selection of books is exceptional, especially the children's and pictorial books. And don't forget: these are the books that Canadian publishers have selected as the most beautiful that they produced last year. As well as the 2006 books, we will also be auctioning our prizewinners published in 2005, all of which were displayed as the best of current Canadian book design at the recent international exhibitions in Frankfurt and Leipzig, Germany. There will also be a small number of this year's prizewinners. All of this takes place on:
