Singular Spaces book wins American Alliance of Museums Design Award!

SPACES is delighted to announce that the book Singular Spaces: From the Eccentric to the Extraordinary in Spanish Art Environments, has received the second place award in the books category in the annual Museum Publications Design Competition, sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums.

The jurors sought out the best in graphic design in 12 different categories. Among the highlights of this year’s winning entries were an interesting mix of risk-taking and classically designed books and catalogs and layouts and font selections that were legible and complimented the content.

For more than 25 years, the Alliance has recognized and encouraged excellence in the graphic design of museum publications through this competition, the only national, juried competition of its kind. Winners are chosen for their overall design excellence, creativity and ability to express an institution’s personality, mission or special features. The panel of judges includes graphic designers, museum professionals and publishers.

Special congratulations are due to Jo Farb Hernández, Director of SPACES and author of the book, and to Marquand Books, Inc., of Seattle, designers. The book was published by Raw Vision in conjunction with SPACES and the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery at San José State University.
