Concordia University Press and the Concordia University Library are pleased to host the 2023 AUPresses Book, Jacket, and Journal show, representing the best in book design from over 150 scholarly publishers.

Please join us at 4th Space between 3 and 5 pm and have a rare chance to handle and hold the 83 titles chosen for their covers, jackets, and typography. Concordia University Press is honoured to have three of its books included in this year’s show:

  • Arthur Erickson on Learning Systems
  • Liz Magor’s Subject to Change Writings and Interviews are both included in the Scholarly Typographic category
  • and Lauren Beck’s Canada’s Place Names and How to Change Them is included in the Book Covers category.

Our congratulations to designers Sean Yendrys, Scott Ponik, and Sébastien Aubin, OTAMI.

The event is free and open to the public and we will have a discussion with award-winning designers about which books stood out for them and what aspects they especially loved. For more information on the AUPresses, the annual design show’s winners, and its jury members, please visit
