We are thrilled to announce that Design Observer and the American Institute of Graphic Arts have chosen Mongrel Rapture as one of 50 titles exemplifying the best in book and book cover design from 2015.
The 50 Books/50 Covers competition received more than 700 entries from around the world this year, including the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Brazil, France, Holland, and Finland. Of these entries, only seven percent made the cut.
As Design Observer put it, ‘the books this year demonstrated astonishing attention to craft, as well as startling ambitions to disrupt expectations about what constitutes a "traditional" book in the first place…These are the best of the best.’
We are incredibly honoured to have our book among such fine company.
The winning books can be viewed here.
