The Most Beautiful Swiss Books of the year 2000

Competition of the Swiss Federal Office of Culture


The competition The Most Beautiful Swiss Books is from now on organised by the art and design section of the Federal Office of Culture (OFC). The aim of the award is to promote book design in Switzerland and raise attention on the best productions. Since last year, the selected titles are presented in two exhibitions, one in Zurich at the beginning of Summer and the second in Lausanne in the Fall. Of the 317 publications received in 2000, the jury has selected 35 books as The Most Beautiful Swiss Books of the year 2000, chiefly on conceptual criteria.
