TORONTO—The Alcuin Society, a voluntary association comprising people with an interest in fine books, has announced that Will Rueter, founder of Aliquando Press, will be the recipient of the 2013 Robert R. Reid Award and Medal for lifetime achievement in the book arts.

He established his private press in 1963. Work of The Aliquando Press won an honorary diploma at the Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt exhibition in Leipzig in 1987 and a bronze medal at the Internationale Buchkunstausstellung 1989. He is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art and is a past nominee for the Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence in the Crafts, according to the Society.

Rueter "explores the media of wood engraving and linocut in some of his own books, and is challenged by the technique of monoprint," noted the Society. (Monoprint is a one-off printmaking technique.)
