BestBook Award

The fifth edition of Object Libro establishes the Best Book Award with the aim of enhancing the works of the three categories at the heart of the initiative: artists’ books, hybrid books (limited edition works made with the aid of technology) and books of design. A further recognition is given to the video which, with the help of augmented reality, enriches the enjoyment of the book.

 The Best Book Award aims to stimulate research and the production of quality works, innovative in form, content, method of creation, capable of leading to a new interpretation of the book as an object and as an instrument of investigation of contemporaneity.
