Hello, I am incredibly proud to have a book exhibited there, among the top innovations in book design in Belgium. I highly encourage you to come and discover these wonders in this unique place dedicated to books in all their forms.


FEBRUARY 12 — APRIL 30, 2023

Wittockiana and Atelier du Livre de Mariemont present an exhibition dedicated to contemporary practices in book design in Belgium.

Driven by the same desire for study, transmission, and showcasing the book, the two institutions come together to make creation in this field visible. The exhibited creations prioritize research and innovation: they question the medium of the book itself, its materiality, reading and writing practices, as well as the relationships between texts and images.

DESIGN-A-BOOK includes two dimensions:

– The presentation of nearly 50 creations selected by an expert jury, following a national call, to illustrate the state of research applied to the book arts over the past five years. Bookbinding and book design, typography, photography, performance, and installation are among the explored themes by the selected artists.

– The exhibition of research and innovative binding techniques developed by the four laureates of the triennial grant for research in the creation and design of books, initiated by the Book Workshop.
