The book lovers on the East Coast will also have a chance to admire this year's winning books at the Alcuin Awards dinner in Toronto. Besides having a chance to meet some of the winners, guests will also have the opportunity to hear Rod McDonald speak about Carl Dair and his amazing typeface, Cartier. Rod McDonald is a type designer who created such wonderful faces such as Slate, Gibson, and of course Cartier Book. Some of the award-winning books have featured his typefaces. For a peek at them, you can see Round 1 and Round 2 of the winners, and stay tuned for Round 3.
Will Reuter will also be attending the event, when he will receive the sixth Robert R. Reid Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Book Arts, celebrating his work as a book designer.
The event will start at 5:30 pm, on Monday, October 7th, at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto, 14 Elm Street. It costs $24.75 (it includes the dinner), which is payable at the door by cash, credit or debit cards, but reservations are required. Please call Naomi Hunter at (416) 597-0223 ext. 3 to reserve your spot, and to specify any food allergies or special requirements.
