Each year, the American Association of Museums sponsors the Museum Publications Design Competition. This year, 700 entries were submitted. We are not a museum, and therefore are not eligible to enter our work. In fact, we don’t usually know which of our books have been entered, so it’s always a delightful surprise to win!
Marquand Books was honored with four awards for our books and exhibition catalogues produced in 2009. Our Design Director, Jeff Wincapaw, was responsible for three of the wins.
Good design is a collaborative process, and we are fortunate to have talented and engaged clients. The museum directors, curators, publications directors, artists, photographers, writers, editors, and production and administrative support involved in these exhibitions and publications deserve credit as well. Our pre-press partner, iocolor, always makes us look good, as do the printers we work with. Many thanks to them all.
Please keep us in mind for some of your upcoming publications. Let’s make great books together!
