The Beauty of the Book exhibit at UBC

UBC Libraries and UBC Press put together a new exhibit that hosts some of the most creative and well-designed books of 2013. Some of them come from the Book, Jacket, and Journal Show organized by the Association of American University Presses (AAUP) and consists of publications that were considered extraordinary both in design and production by judges in New York. Others come from our own Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada, going on their worldwide tour that includes Germany and Japan. So if you missed the opportunity to see these winners at other events, you have one more chance.

The exhibit opens with a reception and refreshments on Monday, December 2, 5-7 p.m., at Irving K. Barber Learning Centre Concourse and is open through December 13.

No matter how dependent we are on digital technologies, nothing can replace the soft touch of paper and the character of a beautifully-printed page. Charming covers and rustling pages are a treat for eyes, ears and fingers.
