Beautiful Books in Korea 2010 introduces the 25 most beautiful books of 2010. The selection embodies a wide spectrum of books, from pocket-sized books to newspaper-sized books, from independent publications and exhibition catalogues to that of big publishing houses. It was selected upon the basis of quality in terms of conception, design, and production, considering the respective context and background. The list also captures recent flows of publication and graphic design in Korea that are distinguishable from the past.
The exhibition includes the selected books as well as the video of the designers’ interview on their books. There will be also a public talk of the jury on July 2, where some of the clues of such flows will be presented. The contents of the talk and the detailed information of the books, alongside with more articles on publishing, will be published later as a part of the project.
