About The Beauty and the Book Award
The BEAUTY AND THE BOOK AWARD is an audience prize for the most beautifully designed book and was awarded for the first time in 2014. It is organised by the Book Art Foundation and the Frankfurt Book Fair.
The main criterion for this prize is not the content of the book, but its outward appearance. All lovers of beautiful books can nominate the book they think is most beautiful at www.beautyandbook.com as well as vote for those that have already been entered.
There are no restrictions regarding year of publication or topic. Everything is allowed: fiction, non-fiction, art, design, architecture, photography, cooking, arts & crafts. All books that were not included in the competition in previous years are eligible.
Submissions can be made until 8 September. After that, it will only be possible to vote. The shortlist will be published on 25 September, containing the winning titles of each category. The final vote will take place live at the Fair, which is also where the winner will be announced on Saturday, 14 October.
The winner will be announced in October at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
