Andrew Satake Blauvelt, chair of AIGA 50 Books | 50 Covers, said,“The jury and I were very impressed with both the quantity and quality of the entries this year, which made choosing only 50 extremely difficult…The strongest covers really connected to the content of the book, while the book designs displayed a penchant for material choices that really emphasized the physicality or object quality of the book.”
