Countdown to Awards Presentation at Emily Carr University 2010-10-21

Once again, a big thank you to all who participated in the Vancouver Antiquarian Book Fair. As the photos attest, it was a weekend full of book delights!

Coming this Thursday is another extra special Alcuin event. It's time for the Vancouver presentation of our annual Alcuin Awards, and we are very pleased to announce that, once again this year, Emily Carr University of Art + Design will host the ceremony. As well, as in the past, there will be an interesting speaker from the field of book design. This year's speaker, Michael Carabetta (Creative Director, Chronicle Books, San Francisco) will give a talk On Chronicle Books: Seeing Things Differently.
