The Swiss Federal Office of Culture organizes the competition “The Most Beautiful Swiss Books” on an annual basis, in order to recognize excellence in the field of book design and production, as well to draw attention to remarkable and contemporary books by Swiss designers, printers, and publishers. The five-member jury, chaired for the first time by Gilles Gavillet, appraised all the submissions and in January 2016 selected eighteen titles as finalists. These books are presented here in creatively staged and shot object portraits, as if each is living a life of its own. An text written from a book’s perspective describes its thoughts about each of its selected peers. Published by Federal Office Of Culture Bern (Bern).
