.Since 1956, Bookbuilders of Boston has sponsored the annual New England Book Show to acknowledge and honor excellence in bookmaking. We're looking for all the best books New England has to offer, from long-established Boston publishers and scholarly presses to independent creators and printers, self-published authors, and students across New England. This year, we're even adding six brand-new categories to the mix: poetry, graphic novels, coffee table books, cookbooks, literary journals, and magazines.

Entries are welcome from anyone who had a hand in producing a book anywhere in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont. So if you've got a book that you published, designed, produced, or manufactured here, it's eligible, even if some of the production happened somewhere else.
A jury of talented and distinguished publishing experts will judge all entries based on design, composition, paper, printing, and binding—or design, functionality, and usability for electronic submissions. The most outstanding entries will be displayed and celebrated at this year's Book Show, as well as in a commemorative catalog.
