The University of Illinois Press will host the annual Book, Jacket and Journal Show, November 1-12. Sponsored by the Association of American University Presses, nearly 100 books and jacketsâ€”the best of university press publishingâ€”will be on view.
University of Illinois Press designer Kelly Gray designed one of the books featured in the collection; poet Michael Harper’s Use Trouble.
The display is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays, at the University of Illinois Press, 1325 S. Oak St. in Champaign. There will be a special reception on Friday, November 5, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. All viewings, and the reception, are free and open to the public.
A high quality catalog shows each entry in full color with typographic, paper, printing, and binding information, along with designers’ and judges’ comments. A limited number of catalog copies will be available for free.
