Back after a series of exhibitions and events around Switzerland, the books that were awarded the Fernand Baudin Prize (prize for the most beautiful books in Brussels and French-speaking Belgium) will be on display at Rosa Brux in a retrospective show featuring all of the prize-winners, from 2008 right up to the present day.

Along with these prize-winning books, the gallery will also be showing new versions of the wooden crate-bookcases that were used by the “Bibliothèque Pour Tous” (Library for All) at the start of the last century to get books out to the public throughout Switzerland, by cart and on the backs of donkeys.

The construction plans for these mobile bookcases, a dual system for both transporting books and presenting them, will be published under an open-source license and distributed at the exhibition.
