A night with the creators, judges and winners from the Academy of British Cover Design
16 January 2020
7.00–9.15pm (Doors 6.00pm)
The Academy of British Cover Design (ABCD) started in 2014 with the aim of creating an annual book cover design competition that was was free to enter, judged by other book cover designers, had a free awards evening and was totally inclusive across all areas of publishing – a completely impossible, nonsensical and ridiculous proposition. In its sixth year, St Bride have invited ABCD co-creators Jon Gray and Jamie Keenan and last year’s winners: Luke Bird, Michelle Brakenborough, Thy Bui, Sinem Erkas, Leo Nickolls, Jonny Pelham, Jack Smyth, and Yeonju Yang and Claudio Ripol, to talk about the how, why and what of ABCD.
