Finished exhibitions

World Book Design 2018-19

Dec. 14, 2019 (Sat) - Mar. 29, 2020 (Sun)
10:00 - 18:00

The exhibit features some 170 books, including books of superior design from Japan, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, China, and as well as books accepted for the Best Book Design from all over the World 2019, 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.

*There are some books that are not available due to the limited number of copies, this is not the exhibition of all prize-awarded works.
