Figure 1 Publishing Wins Alcuin Awards
We are delighted to announce that Figure 1 Publishing recently won several awards at the 2016 Alcuin Awards for Excellence in Book Design. We took first and third prize in the reference category for Araxi: Roots to Shoots, Farm Fresh Recipes and Ottawa Cooks respectively. Both titles were designed by our creative director, Jessica Sullivan who also won a prize in the pictorial category for Yes, Yes We’re Magicians. Her artistry continues to push the boundaries of beautiful book design.
We congratulate our senior designer, Natalie Olsen for winning prizes in the poetry category. Her wonderful short story advent calendar also received an honourable mention in the limited editions category.
The Alcuin Society promotes the appreciation of beautifully produced books, connecting like-minded individuals and promoting the finest in Canadian book design. This win is particularly significant for Figure 1 since it is our goal to consistently produce the most stunning, innovative art books in North America.
Thank you to the Alcuin Society for recognizing these three Figure 1 Publishing titles!
