Each year, an esteemed jury selects the best in book and book
cover design for AIGA's “50 Books/50 Covers” competition to
recognize excellence in book design and production.
A companion to the traveling exhibition of winning entries which began at the AIGA National Design Center in New
York City in 2010, the 50 Books/50 Covers of 2009
catalogue showcases selections from the juried “AIGA 50 Books/50
Covers of 2009” competition identifying the best-designed books and
book covers published in 2009.
The competition selections are published in AIGA's online
archives at designarchives.aiga.org, exhibited at the AIGA National
Design Center and preserved in the AIGA Design Archives at the
Denver Art Museum in Colorado. In addition, selections from each
year's “50 Books/50 Covers” competition are housed in the Rare Book
and Manuscript Library at Columbia University.

multiple views of the year's selections along with jurors'
comments. A welcome addition to the library of any book lover, the
