The Most Beautiful Books in the World, 1991-2005

The Most Beautiful Books in the World Competition is held every March in Leipzig, Germany. Competition judges examine about 700 splendid works from 30 countries or so to select the most beautiful of the year. Every entry has overcome the limitations inherent in mass printing in one way or another.

This international exhibition introduces some 200 award-winning titles published in the last 15 years, from 1991 to 2005. The exhibition comes to its finale in Tokyo after debuting in Frankfurt (Germany) and moving on to Seoul (South Korea), Tallin (Estonia), and Shanghai (China). Visitors are invited to actually handle nearly 70 of the books on display.

Schedule: Feb. 11, 2006 (Sat-holiday) - Apr. 23, 2006 (Sun)
Closed: Mondays
Hours: 10:00 - 18:00
