Silver and bronze to photo books


Books in the field of art, photography and architecture are increasingly published in a variety of international entanglements. This year’s Golden Letter, the highest prize of the Best Book Design from all over the World contest in Leipzig, Germany, was won by the book Untitled (September Magazine) by artist Paul Elliman, co-published by Roma Publications from Amsterdam.

This book hit the Leipzig jury desk as one of the most beautiful books of 2013 in Brussels and Wallonia. Two of the Best Dutch Book Designs 2014 also won prizes in Leipzig.

A silver medal was awarded to Awoiska van der Molen’s photo book Sequester (published by Fw:Books, design Hans Gremmen). Besides that there was a bronze medal for New Horizons by Bruno van den Elshout, who a year long took photograps of the sea from a roof (published by The Eriskay Connection, design Rob van Hoesel).

The seven judges in Leipzig had to judge 585 books from 30 countries. The award ceremony will take place on March 13 at the Leipzig Book Fair.
