From over 700 entries from 29 countries! — 🏆 #AIGA5050 Best Books 2018 winner list includes Terreform Urban Research’s latest book: Spaces of Disappearance: The Architecture of Extraordinary Rendition by Jordan H. Carver.
This competition continues a tradition that dates back over ninety years, when American Institute of Graphic Arts, mounted the show The Fifty Books of 1923. The exhibition went right to the heart of what the then-fledgling profession held dear: the design and production of books. In an age where reading increasingly happens on screens, it is clear from the winning entries that designers and publishers are not just resigned to the new world but are actively challenging it.
