Carl Hertzog Award for Excellence in Book Design

I was recently invited to UTEP to help judge their Carl Hertzog Award for Excellence in Book Design. UTEP is having a number of anniversaries this year and thought it might be a good idea to have the first recipient of the award (1991) over to help judge, if still alive. Amazingly, I still was. The co-judges were excellent as were a number of works submitted. They are notifying the winners but it would be presumptuous for me to mention these at this point. At any rate, I was amazed at how El Paso has changed in the last twenty plus years and how the University has grown. I can see this as the up and coming locus for the printing book arts. Stay tuned.
