Die 25 Schönsten Deutschen Bücher 2022
Awarded by Stiftung Buchkunst
The Stiftung Buchkunst selected Die 25 Schönsten Deutschen Bücher 2022 (The 25 Most Beautiful German Books) of the year. 645 entries competed for the coveted awards.
In Die 25 Schönsten Deutschen Bücher competition, two juries of experts selected the 25 most beautiful books of the year in an elaborate process. For seven days, 14 jurors discussed the submitted novelties. The 25 selected books are exemplary in design, conception, and processing and show a wide range of design and manufacturing possibilities.
Stephanie Ising, creative director at HERBURG WEILAND in Munich and juror for the 2022 competition on this year’s jury work: “I really enjoyed being part of the jury. I was convinced by the production quality of individual titles. You simply notice that you don’t get very far in the book trade with standard solutions anymore.”
The Preis der Stiftung Buchkunst, worth 10,000 euros, will be announced at an awards ceremony in Frankfurt am Main on September 2nd, 2022. This will be selected by a third jury from the 25th Most Beautiful German Books. In which framework the award ceremony can take place under the given circumstances will be announced in the course of the summer.
The winners of the second Förderpreis für junge Buchgestaltung competition have also been announced. This year, 180 entries competed for the three prizes of 2,000 euros each. This competition, organized by the Stiftung Buchkunst, honors particularly innovative and forward-looking projects that conceptually advance the medium of the book.
