Australian Book Design Awards adds indie category

The Australian Book Design Awards has added a new category to this year’s awards. ‘Affectionately dubbed the “Indie 1000”’, the new category is ‘designed for independent publishers and self-published books with a small print run, between 25 and 1000 units, and comprising of at least 24 pages’, said Australian Book Designers Association committee member Sandy Cull in a statement. ‘Although independent publishers can enter books in the other categories, this new award aims to recognise excellence in design for limited edition books using print-on-demand or non-conventional production means, including handmade books.’ As previously reported by Books+Publishing, this year’s Australian Book Design Awards will be managed by the newly formed Australian Book Designers Association.
