Book selected as finalist in publishing prize

UniSA senior lecturer Dr Rachel Hurst has had her book selected as one of five finalists for the Melbourne Art Book Fair’s inaugural Cornish Family Prize for Art and Design Publishing.

Dr Hurst from the School of Art, Architecture and Design wrote The Gentle Hand + The Greedy Eye: an everyday baroque practice in architecture, as one component of her PhD by practice, and collaborated with New Zealand designer Catherine Griffiths to design and produce the book.

Dr Hurst’s book has previously won the Australian Graphic Design Award for Publications, The Judge's Choice and Pinnacle award at the AGDA national event in late 2016, and a bronze award in the New Zealand Graphic Design Awards.

The list of finalists for the Melbourne Art Book Fair is available on the National Gallery of Victoria website.
