At long last, our annual Book Design Exhibition is coming up.
As always, we will be presenting winning books at design contests held around the world in countries as varied as Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France, China, and Australia. And of course we will also be displaying the winners at the World's Most Beautiful Book Contest. Ranging from specialized books to art books, both the contents and covers of the winning works on display will give you a new insight into the countries where they were produced.
With some 240 books on display along with judges' comments and relative data, taking each book in your hands would require a Herculean effort, so multiple visits might be required in order to satisfy your curiosity. Or perhaps you're the type of person who would concentrate only on the books that caught your eye as you paced through the gallery. In either case, we've provided chairs to make perusing more convenient (although they night not be the most comfortable you've ever sat in), and we're anxiously awaiting your visit.
