Submissions welcome between 6 and 6


It’s registration time for The Best Dutch Book Designs 2013, and it will be running until January 6, 2014. Please use the following link to register:

After January 6 the five judges will embark upon the task of selecting The Best Dutch Book Designs 2013, at least 30 and at maximum 33 books. Immediately after this is done the brand new selection will be submitted to the international jury of Best Book Design from all over the World, the world beauty contest for the book in Leipzig.

Later in 2014 the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam will exhibit The Best Dutch Book Designs. Earlier this year The Best Dutch Book Designs have been on show at Oporto, Poznán, Taipei, Tokyo, Vienna and at the book fairs of Leipzig, Buenos Aires and Frankfurt. It is our ambition to realise at least a similar exhibition program next year. We expect to unveil The Best Dutch Book Designs of 2013 on Friday February 21, 2014.
