Teo Schifferli, whose work involves the idea of “the architecture of the book”, was responsible for the design and typesetting of this year’s roundup of the best of Swiss books. The catalogue can be viewed as a list of characteristic elements drawn from each of the recognised books from 2017. As a result, the reader is able to witness the design process in action: research, reproduction, photography, image editing, text editing, image processing, type design, layout. Besides a detailed documentation of these work processes, each of the eighteen awarded books is accompanied by the jury review and a technical index, giving a complete picture of what makes them outstanding.
