Narrowing down the selection

Every year we book designers wait to see the results of AIGA’s 50/50 book competition. And while they are always great, the selections are either too many or lopsided in this way or that (It must be so hard for these judges to look at all this great work being submitted and try to make a fair judgment call). Well, this year the selection is superb and the amount just right. We have taken the liberty here to even further distill the selection. Enjoy and happy friday!
