50 Books | 50 Covers: Call For Entries

Design Observer is pleased to announce the opening of the 50 Books/50 Covers competition for books published in 2013. For guidelines and more information, click here.

Beginning in 1924, the 50 Books competition was a yearly mainstay of the AIGA. As dust jackets became more common, 50 Covers were added to the competition. This survey of the best in book design represents perhaps the longest-standing legacy in American graphic design. In 2011, Design Observer, in partnership with AIGA, began hosting the competition and we are pleased to usher in another year of amazing book and cover design.

The competition will close March 18, 2015.

Historical 50 Books / 50 Covers collections from 1995-2010 are viewable in the AIGA Design Archives. To view winners from 2011-2013, click here.
