The Alcuin Society, a voluntary association of people who coordinate Canada’s national book design awards, awarded Peter Cocking, the designer of “The Men Who Killed Me”, second place in the prose non-fiction illustrated category, for his work on the book.
In all, this year’s judges (Marian Bantjes, Linda Gustafson, and Peter Koch) selected 30 winning titles for the 28th annual Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design in Canada. The books were chosen from 252 Canadian entries published in 2009, from 9 provinces and 108 publishers.
The Alcuin Award winning books will be exhibited internationally: in Germany, at the Frankfurt and Leipzig Book Fairs; in England, at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library and the Norwich University College of the Arts; and in Japan, at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, in conjunction with the Tokyo International Book Fair. The books will also be exhibited in 19 venues across Canada. They will compete in the international book design competition in Leipzig, Germany in February 2011.
