Art bookbinding international contest has been existing for 30 years. It clearly is the oldest international bookbinding contest. This event is a must for professionals and a challenge for binding schools and amateur bookbinders.
For the 16th biennial, we have chosen to lead you into the wonderful world of an African reservation ; so you can share this incredible affectionate bond between a 10 year old girl and a lion she took in and cared for when he was a baby. It’s a Joseph Kessel novel, written in 1958, at the age of 60. We contacted Carol Richard, illustrator, to illustrate this superb publication with 6 original etchings and one frontpage. These will bring added value to the book.
All 2022 bindings are part of the exhibition from sept 22nd to 25th, in Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse (France). See all 2022 bindings
Informations about 2024 contest will be available soon.
