Competition

As in the previous years, Switzerland was honoured once again in this year's international competition. On February 5th and 6th 2010, the Stiftung Buchkunst held its annual competition 'Best Book Design from all over the World' in Leipzig, Germany. Seven jury members from Australia, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Schweden and the Czech Republic examined 596 books from 32 nations in the Germany National Library. These books had al­ready been awarded in their na­tional com­pe­ti­tions. As in every year, there were 14 awards to con­fer: One golden let­ter, one gold medal, two sil­ver medals, five bronze medals and five hon­orary ap­pre­ci­a­tions. Switzer­land re­ceived the fol­low­ing dis­tinc­tions:
