Reading Reading

The Swiss Federal Office of Culture holds an annual competition that recognizes excellence in book design and production. An international five-member jury selects a set of publications, the so-called Most Beautiful Swiss Books, from a broad range of submissions.

For 2016, twenty-four books were chosen and in 2017, seventeen students at the Rhode Island School of Design have analyzed these award-winning publications. Rather than assigning superlatives, they have emphasized the experience of reading itself: of what it means to read and to be read.

 

My team and I worked on the concept which tried to read into the act of reading by highlighting both the physical and digital act of reading.
