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.
