  • Comstock-Gág Read Aloud Book Awards Seals

    Comstock Seal

    Comstock Gold SealJeff Tessman, an art and graphic design major at Minnesota State University Moorhead, designed the Comstock Book Award seals. In Jeff’s words, “The Comstock design portrays reading as an enjoyable pastime. It is a unique way in which family members can spend quality time learning together. Pictured, a boy and girl take turns reading to each other (equality); behind them is the sunrise, an image of a brighter future with its rays ever expanding (knowledge). The laurels are an ancient acknowledgment of higher achievement (esteem) and the whole idea was placed within a circle (eternal) to represent that this is a quality concept that should be nurtured for future generations.”
