New Book Madness Bucky READ Posters are available!

BookMadness2013-4-10-13Following the tremendous success of the Book Madness Tournament this year, the Libraries’ external relations office created a new run of Bucky READ posters to celebrate the winning book– J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

In a tight race against Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, LOTR claimed the UW-Madison Libraries 2013 Book Madness tournament title on April 10th.  LOTR won with 51.7% of the votes– here’s how the final match-up went down:

  • The Lord of the Rings: 451 votes, 51.7%
  • Pride and Prejudice: 421 votes, 48.3%

The new posters, seen at right, show Bucky reading his copy of The Lord of the Rings at the terrace.  The posters are 9×12,” a perfect size for lockers, bulletin boards, or dorm room walls.

E-mail if you’re interested in ordering these special-edition Book Madness Bucky READ posters.


Special thanks go to Senior Artist Dan Joe for creating the new design.
