Drawing attention to remarkable contemporary books by Swiss designers, printers and publishers, the competition for the most outstanding examples of book design in Switzerland has been held annually since 1943. The jury, which takes into account each book's overall concept, materials, graphic design and typography, with particular attention to innovation and originality, awarded a total of 27 books published in 2011. Presented here is an overview of the awarded titles, plus a special focus on the winner of the Jan Tschichold Award, which honours excellence in the field of book design and was this year for the first time given to a printer, Erich Keiser of the Druckerei Odermatt.
