From among hundreds of entries, The Association of University Presses has released the results of its 2020 Book, Jacket and Journal show—and there are a lot of covetable covers on display.

The show has been running for more than five decades, and this year’s selections were made by the following jurors:

Thomas Eykemans, design director at Lucia|Marquand, co-founder of the Seattle Art Book Fair, and previously senior designer at the University of Washington Press.
• Sue Hall, freelance designer based in Raleigh, NC, and co-founder of the Raleigh AIGA chapter. Previously, she was journals designer and art director at Duke University Press.
• Lucinda Hitchcock, book designer, writer, typographer and graphic design professor and department head at the Rhode Island School of Design.
• Anne Twomey, creative director of Celadon Books, former vice president and creative director of Grand Central Publishing, and former vice president and executive art director at St. Martin’s Press.

Eykemans and Twomey narrowed the jacket submissions down to a list of 40, from which the selections below derive. As Eykemans said in a release, “It is tempting to simply judge a book by its cover, but our task was transposed to judge the covers by their books. I was heartened to find that many designers are actively and thoughtfully engaging their subjects, resulting in a diverse array of innovative typographic approaches, creative solutions, colorful palettes and unusual material selections.”
