A word of the chairwoman

The 14th biennial is over. We are happy to announce that it took us just three weeks to return the books (158 boxes) that were not taken at the end of the exposition. Many thanks for your participation, thanks to your works our exposition was again very beautiful. Now we start to prepare the 15th with L'étranger by Albert Camus. ( more information as soon as possible).

The results of the "Visitors' Choice" are visible in the left menu or here.

We found a pair of corrective sunglasses. Please let us know if you forgot them during your visit. !

General principle of competition

The "World Biennials of Art Bookbinding" aim to promote the art of bookbinding through a contest held every 2 years.

The principle of the contest is simple : the association selects a book from French literature, has it printed on Arches Vellum and offers it in January of even years to both amateur and professional bookbinders all over the world.

Every participant has until May 15th of the following year to achieve the bookbinding of his/her choice. No constraint is imposed relating to the shapes, techniques and materials used, but the perfection of the realization will be the jury's key decision factor.

An international Jury of professionals attributes several prizes in cash, other awards are offered by official and private sponsors.

Each Biennial ends with the exhibition in September (odd years) of all the bindings presented to the Jury.
