The Most Beautiful Swiss Books competition was established to promote and reward the best of book design in Switzerland at the behest of the famous typographer and designer Jan Tschichold in 1943.

The Swiss Federal Office of Culture organises the competition on an annual basis. Its purpose is to recognise excellence in the field of book design and production, as well as drawing attention to the array of remarkable and contemporary books by Swiss designers, printers and publishers.

The exhibition is hosted by designer Mathias Clottu and design historian Jonas Berthod with a scenography by Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad.

The exhibition, opening and events programme are kindly supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture and the Swiss Embassy in London.
