The exhibition creates a unique platform for pioneers of contemporary book design from China here in Berlin. Nearly 150 outstanding books with the finest Chinese printing and binding techniques can be explored up close. Topics range from traditional crafts and Chinese character design to modern Chinese literature and contemporary art.
More than 20 leading Chinese graphic designers in the field of contemporary book design are participating in the exhibition, especially many female designers. Although they come from different regions of China and different generations, they are all passionate about book design. However, what they earn from book design does not match their passion and work. Looking at these wonderful designs, we all know that it is the charm of books themselves that has driven these lively and influential designers in contemporary China.
