Out of a pool of almost 600 submissions from 32 different countries the international jury from the contest Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt awarded three prizes to the Dutch selection of the Best Book Designs in 2016. Namely: the main prize, the Golden Letter, for Ornithology by Anne Geene & Arjan de Nooy, a silver medal for (Un)expected by Peter Dekens, and a bronze medal for Dwars Vers by Emily Dickinson & Edna St. Vincent Millay.
All submissions will be visible on a screen in the exhibition, as well as the choice of a panel of students.
The jury’s selections are on view as part of a presentation designed by EventArchitectuur, Amsterdam.
