Gaspereau Press Wins Six Alcuin Design Awards

Thursday, April 9th, 2009


I was pleased to read that Andrew Steeves at Gaspereau Press just received six Alcuin Book Design Awards, which are awarded each year to the best book designers in Canada. Andrew also designs the North American issues of Parenthesis. Congratulations Andrew and all the folks at Gaspereau Press! See four of Gaspereau’s award-winning books here. One of the award winners was Wesley Bates’ In Black & White, a review of which will run in the Fall 2009 issue of Parenthesis.

“This letterpress-printed poetry book is the first book which employs a jacket paper handmade by Gary Dunfield at Gaspereau Press. Designed and handprinted by Andrew Steeves at Gaspereau Press.”
