Finished exhibitions

World Book Design 2014-15

Dec. 5, 2015 (Sat) - Feb. 28, 2016 (Sun)
10:00 - 18:00

The exhibit features some 200 books, including books of superior design from Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Austria, Canada, China, and for the first time this year, Denmark and as well as books accepted for the World's Most Beautiful Book Competition, which is held every year in March at the Leipzig Book Fair.

There were books whose binding, printing, and typography were flawlessly designed in a traditional manner, as well as many surprisingly unconventional books. All the books on display made one realize how high the level of design and bookbinding techniques are today.
