50 Books/50 Covers: Call For Entries




Design Observer is pleased to announce the opening of the 50 Books/50 Covers competition for books published in 2013. For guidelines and more information, click here.

Beginning in 1924, the 50 Books competition was a yearly mainstay of the AIGA. As dust jackets became more common, 50 Covers were added to the competition. This survey of the best in book design represents perhaps the longest-standing legacy in American graphic design. In 2011, Design Observer, in partnership with AIGA and Designers & Books, began hosting the competition and we are pleased to usher in another year of amazing book and cover design.

The competition will close February 20, 2014.

Historical 50 Books / 50 Covers collections from 1995-2010 are viewable in the AIGA Design Archives. To view winners from 2011 and 2012, click here.
