Exhibitions and competitions

In order to try out new materials or investigate new techniques, non-commissioned work is a good way for bookbinders to explore their abilities and experiment with new innovations.

The craft of bookbinding also has a creative side, which involves design and the applied arts.
Exhibitions and competitions, open to all binders, are regularly organised to promote this art.
Participation in such events on a national and international level is a great challenge and exchanging ideas with colleagues can both inspire and enrich the bookbinder’s own work.
