Larned’s “Our Daily Lives” 1 of 50 AIGA best books

Sept 2018 — Professor Larned’s book, “Our Daily Lives have to be a satisfaction in themselves” was named one of fifty best books by the AIGA for 2017. Printed in risograph in a limited first edition, “our Daily Lives” is now in its second printing. See more on the book, which also won awards at the TDC and CADC competitions for 2017.


Judged by a distinguished jury of designers (Rodrigo Corral, Carin Goldberg, Maricris Herrera, and Jessica Helfand (chair)), the AIGA (the professional association for design) annual competition brought together over 800 books and book covers. The results were fifty great designs for books and book covers. “The books, which are exemplars of the craft and effect of good design, will become part of the AIGA collection at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Columbia University’s Butler Library and at the Robert Haas Arts Library at Yale University.” — AIGA
