The annual book design competition Best Book Design from all over the World has been held in Leipzig since 1963. The international competition assesses books which have previously been judged and singled out for merit by specialist panels in their respective countries of origin. 600 books from 32 countries were sent in and the winners were recently announced. Two Norwegian books were given the honor of receiving an award.
