poster for World Book Design 2019-20

Ends in 43 days

This exhibition will display a total of around 90 books. Specifically, the books on display were announced as winners of the competition, “Best Book Design from all over the World,” in March 2020, as well as books that won national competitions held in four countries (Germany, Switzerland, Canada, and China). For the Best Book Design from all over the World 2020, there were approximately 700 entries from around 30 countries and regions, with the winners including books from Israel, Portugal, and other countries, some having fewer opportunities to win past rounds of the competition. Visitors to the exhibition will have a rare opportunity to take a look at books from these countries, which is part of the experience provided by this event that showcases first-class book designs from around the world and the art of bookmaking.
