Student Design Competition—250th Anniversary Bookplates

The Book Arts Workshop at Dartmouth cordially invites all interested Dartmouth undergraduate and graduate students to submit an original design for a new bookplate commemorating Dartmouth College’s 250th anniversary in 2019. All designs will be created using hand-set type, ornaments and engravings available in the Book Arts Workshop’s letterpress studio. Bookplates incorporating the winning design will be printed by hand and affixed to hardcover copies of the forthcoming coffee table history of Dartmouth. The competition comes with a $250 prize for the winner.

Deadline for entries: May 31, 2018

Sign up for one of our Letterpress Orientation classes to learn how to set type and print with letterpress. We even have a class especially designed to help you get ready for this competition. [link to the Book Arts Workshop registration page and class schedule]
