Publishers supplied information for each title: author, illustrator, editor, art director, designer, production director, printer, binder, page size, pagination, size of first printing, price, methods of preparation and reproduction of art, text and display typefaces and compositors, and names and manufacturers of text paper and binding materials. Jacket specifications are listed only if they differ from the specifications for the book's interior. This includes illustrator, designer, methods of preparation and reproduction of art, printer, display typeface, and compositor. This is followed by a judges' critique of the book.
