Three Canadian books recognized at international design awards

Three Canadian books have been recognized by Stiftung Buchkunst, organizers of the international book design competition held annually at the Leipzig Book Fair in Germany.

Marvin Harder, designer of Relations on Southeastern Hudson Bay by Toby Morantz (Avataq Cultural Institute); Emmelyne Pornillos and Laurie Castilloux-Bouchard, designers of The Conservation, Restoration and Repair of Stringed Instruments and Their Bows, edited by Tom Wilder and Aurèle Parisien (IPCI-Canada); and Jessica Sullivan and Naomi MacDougall, designers of The Little Hummingbird by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, were among those shortlisted for 14 awards, selected from 540 titles submitted from 31 countries.

Copies of the three titles have been donated to the German Book and Type Museum in Leipzig.
