Things to look for at our Awards Ceremony at Emily Carr University

Poster designed by Meriliese Cabebe

For those attending our awards ceremonies tomorrow evening at Emily Carr University, you'll be able to see an appropriate collection of graphic design on display.

Students at Emily Carr have taken the event as a design challenge, and I anticipate the resulting series of posters for the event will be on display outside of the lecture hall. Our previous post featured a poster by Sam Dal Monte, and seen above is another poster by ECUAD student Meriliese Cabebe, which she submitted to us via Twitter.

Speaking of which, if you haven't already noticed the addition of the Twitter sidebar on the blog, it's certainly high time to announce that Alcuin indeed lives on Twitter! You can follow along at It turns out the restriction of 140 characters is no barrier for true typographic aficionados, where there is a healthy dose of book design and letterpress musing already occurring.

Another special treat to look for at the event tomorrow will be a Limited Edition Broadside by Carol Ann Duffy. From the website:
Carol Ann Duffy, UK Poet Laureate, was the 2009 Vancouver Island University Gustafson Chair of Poetry. Ms Duffy generously gave the Ralph Gustafson Poetry Trust permission to print and sell copies of a signed, numbered, limited edition letterpress broadside of her first poem as Poet Laureate, “Last Post”, to raise funds for the Trust.
The poster was printed by Gaspereau Press in Nova Scotia, and a limited number of the broadside will be available for sale, so please do considering supporting this organization dedicated to advancing the poetry arts. Once again, we look forward to seeing you at the event!
