Introducing the 2022 ENDIES Awards!
Way back when The Undies Case Cover Awards were first discussed, another award idea was tossed around: an award for the best endpapers.
You know what endpapers are, right?
They’re the first thing you see when you open the cover of a book. Endpapers are often pretty boring: pain paper in one color or another.
But sometimes, the endpapers are beautiful. Sometimes, they even add to the story.
We want to honor the most creative endpapers of the year, and so . . .
Here’s how The Endies will work:
Now through October 31st, 2022 we are accepting nominations* for the best endpapers of the year
In November, we will announce our favorites.
*To nominate end papers for the 2021 Endies:
Make sure your nomination was published between November 1, 2021 and October 31, 2022. If so, take a photo of the front endpapers AND the back endpapers (click here to see an example).
*NOTE* You must have a Google account to submit.
Anyone (including publishers) can nominate! You can nominate as many books as you’d like.
Let’s recognize the best endpapers of the year!
