— Australian Book Design Awards

The shortlist for the Australian Book Design Awards has been announced.

 

The Book Design Awards are Australia’s longest running  graphic design awards, but in 2013 the Australian Publishing Association decided to discontinue them. To keep the awards running for a 62nd consecutive year, a group of Australian designers formed the ABDA as an independent, non-profit entity in March 2014.
