The Finnish Book Art Committee
The Finnish Book Art committee chooses the Most Beautiful Books of the Year collection annually. One book receives the honorary title of the Most Beautiful book. The year´s most successful book covers forms a group of its own. Honorary diplomas are handed out to the designers, publishers, printers and other production units of prize-winning books.
The Finnish Fair Foundation has granted financial aid annually for the Finnish Book Art Committee. Committee works in cooperation with the National Library.
The Committee´s long list selection jury evaluates the books entered for the competition and presents them to the main jury which decides on those selected for the Most Beautiful Books. Representatives of the following book and graphic fields participate in the work of the juries:
Aalto University - School of Art and Design
The Most Beautiful books collection is on display every year in Finland at venues including libraries and book fairs, and abroad in international festivals and competitions.
In Finland the Most Beautiful Books of the Year have been chosen annually since 1947. The Most Beautiful Books are chosen in more than 30 countries each year.
