The exhibitions serve to present the annual book production from over 35 countries from around the world, classed in the following categories: fiction, science, art monographs and photomonographs, children’s books and books for youth, school books, bibliophile and reprinted editions, and catalogues.
We take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the exhibitions and contribute to a better presentation of the Croatian book publishing internationally.
Books (published between 10 August 2010 and 9 August 2011 should be sent by the publishers by 15 August 2011 to the following address:
Nacionalna i sveučilišna knjižnica u Zagrebu
(za „Book Art International“)

A panel of judges will select the best designed books by the end of August. The organizers will inform the public of their decision via the media, and the selected books will subsequently be sent to Frankfurt.
Books selected and exhibited in Frankfurt will be included in the holdings of the German Book and Type Museum, part of the German National Library (Die Deutsche Bibliothek).
