This publication annually showcases the results of the competition ‘The Most Beautiful Swiss Books’, coordinated by the Swiss Ministry of Culture and aimed at promoting Swiss book design. The catalogue presents the award-winning books and their technical facts and figures, as well as the jury’s verdict. Moreover, it serves as a platform for discourse about book design and production and is in itself an example of contemporary graphic design trends. ‘The Future Issue’ is the third catalogue in the Back To The Future Trilogy, concerned with the past, present and future of book design. Series concept/design by Laurenz Brunner (Amsterdam/Zurich) and series concept/editing by Tan Wälchli (Chicago/Zurich).
