Stiftung Buchkunst

The Stiftung Buchkunst (Foundation for Book Design) provides critical support for German book production. For more than 60 years, it has been promoting the exemplary design of published books and providing them with a highly respected forum. Their three important competitions are "The Most Beautiful German Books" (awarded every year by an independent jury based on design, conception and craft), "Promotional Prize for Young Book Design" and "The Most Beautiful Books from All Over the World". The award-winning books and those on the short and long lists are exhibited at Frankfurter Buchmesse and can be seen in bookshops, libraries, and universities throughout Germany.
