We're pleased to announce that our speaker at this year's Vancouver awards presentation for the 29th annual Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada will be John Gall, Art Director at Vintage Books (New York), a publishing imprint originally founded in 1954 by Alfred A. Knopf.

The event will be hosted by, and take place at, the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, as previously announced. (Note the date for this event has changed from Thursday, October 13 to Wednesday, October 12, 2011).

The award-winning books from the design competition will be available for viewing before and after the evening's events.

We have posted this event on our new Facebook Page, and we will continue to post events to this group in the future, as well as maintaining the Google Calendar on our website.

Speaking of Facebook, while we don't wish to pander for attention, we are pleased to announce we have secured the URL so please feel free to like our page if you feel so inclined! : )
