The AAUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show—which is traveling the country and is on display in the Valley Library at Oregon State University through Jan. 18th—features examples of excellent book design from the scholarly publishing world. OSU Press’s The Lumberman’s Frontier is among the award-winners for cover design. Up the Capitol Steps cover
