Australian Book Design Awards 2017 Shortlist


The Australian Book Design Association just announced their Shortlist (PDF) for the 65th Australian Book Design Awards. Happily (if somewhat implausibly), I was asked to be the international judge this year (you can read about the other, imminently more qualified judges, here).

As a sample of what you can expect from the shortlist, here are the covers in the Nonfiction category: 


Design by Mary Callahan

Design W. H. Chong

Design by Allison Colpoys

Design Jenny Grigg

The winners of the awards will be announced on Friday 26 May at the Awards Party in Sydney. Tickets go on sale Thursday 20 April.
