From the SPD Archives: Publication Design Annual #2, 1976

From the SPD Archives: Publication Design Annual #2, 1976 SPD50k.jpgIn 1976 the Society of Publication Designers published its second annual book, collecting the best publication design from the 11th Annual Publication Design Awards. Society of Publication Designers '76 was a paperback book, printed entirely in black and white (except the cover). The book was designed with a bicentennial cover theme by Murray Belsky, with cover art by Cal Sacks.

SPD published two paperback design annuals before starting its series of hardbound editions with Publication Design 12 in 1978. The President of SPD in 1976 was Robert N. Essman, art director of People Weekly (as People magazine was referred to at the time). Winning entries from the competition were exhibited on May 20, 1976 at the Master Eagle Gallery in NYC.
