March Feature

People often tell us how much they love the look of University of Washington Press books, so we're always pleased when our talented design team is awarded the recognition they deserve. The 2015 Association of American University Presses Book, Jacket, and Journal Show selections were just announced and we're delighted to report that several UW Press books will be featured along with an incredibly rich display of university press design talent.

The 2015 show will premiere at the AAUP Annual Meeting in Denver this June. Afterward, it will be exhibited at member presses around the country from September 2015 through May 2016. We include our selected titles here and encourage you to visit the AAUP website to see the full selection of books to be included in this year's show.
