Kudos to Christopher Sergio and Catherine Casalino for distributing this petition to preserve the AIGA’s 50 Books/50 Covers competition, which was only recently, unceremoniously discontinued. Publishing is unarguably going through more than a few simultaneous growing pains right now, but sacrificing the inspired ideas and visual narratives that come out of designing books and book covers isn’t one of them. Signing it requires less than a minute.
UPDATE: Saved! That was quick. The petition scored over a thousand signatures in less than a week. Hot damn.
