Providing educational resources and opportunities for all individuals involved in book and book-related publishing.

46th Annual PPN Book Show

​Spend an autumn evening networking with colleagues over some of the best book designs to be published on the West Coast and beyond.

The book show is our opportunity to celebrate an aspect of books that will never change—the beauty and functionality of good design. This year, for the first time, we invited student entries from graphic design schools, and the projects submitted ranged from production-ready to handmade works of art.

Hosted on the fourth floor of Chronicle’s headquarters, just steps from AT&T Park, the evening will feature:

  • Displays of this year’s book show winners and entrants
  • Presentation of the annual Distinguished Service Award
  • Hors d’oeuvres and assorted beverages, including wine and beer (no-host bar)

All proceeds from the event will go toward free-attendance scholarships for the annual PPN conference.

Deadline for registering is October 19, 2017.
