this week the selection of Best Verzorgde Boeken 2011 (best designed books) got announced. congratulations to all the winners! last year i complained about the poor communication by the organization and this year is no different unfortunately. as soon as i found about the selection i posted them on twitter and facebook but i feel the winners deserve a post on here as well.

i can’t find the jury rapport at this point but i think i’ll have to wait until autumn because that’s when the selection will be exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. the catalog will be published around the same time.

if you’re interested in book judging, the korean magazine GRAPHIC devoted an issue to the phenomenon. you can order it at the GRAPHIC website.

yesterday i did post on the current exhibition by AIGA about book design in St. Gallen, Switzerland. only to find out they have a great feature called Design Archives. since AIGA does the yearly 50 books / 50 covers competition those archives hold plenty of book images and other good stuff. if you want to take a look at the design archives you can visit them here.
