So you’ve got a great piece of editorial design that you want to show off and tell people about? The Book Design Blog showcases unique and inspirational printed books and publications.
What should I submit?
Despite the blog name, we’re not just interested in beautifully designed books. Any well-designed, creative, or just unique printed publication will catch our eye. Things like…
…and of course, books. We’ll consider featuring anything printed with a vaguely book-like construction, whether it’s mass-produced, or a lone self-published creation. The weirder and more unique the better.
Please note: We do not feature e-books, digital publications or digital mock-ups of spreads (unless it’s a very conceptual project). Despite how fantastic the work may be, we want to keep the focus of the site on the beauty and craftsmanship of printed books and publications.
Please do not submit flat PDF spreads or artwork files as we will not use them.
