The Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2016


Beauty lies in the details. Organised each year, the competition for the Most Beautiful Swiss Booksrecognises outstanding graphic design in the field of books, promotes and showcases high-quality production, and raises public awareness of the winning books, both nationally and abroad. This year’s five-member jury, chaired by Gilles Gavillet, selected 24 publications from among more than 400 submissions. The works were appraised for concept, graphic design and typography, quality of printing and binding, and attention to the materials used. The exceptional catalogue for this edition was designed by Hubertus, who takes us literally back to the book and its material essence.
