Canada’s Most Beautiful Books: The Alcuin Society’s 2015 Winners

Now in Vancouver for the first time: Last year’s winners of the 34 th Alcuin Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada are now on display to the public at UBC. The IK Barber Learning Centre is showcasing these books in their main concourse for the month of March, 2017.


Among these lovely thirty-eight books are cookbooks, children’s books, pictorial books – eight different categories, all with Canadian designers and publishers; seven were produced here in British Columbia. They have all been on tour both nationally and internationally, and will be exhibited at the prestigious Leipzig Book Fair later this month, officially representing Canadian publishing in Europe. You can see a preview of the books in our awards catalogue, but this will be your last chance to view the real thing.

You can read more abut it on the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre blog.
