This lovely book is accompanying the exhibition of the same name looking at 60 years of the national award for book design originally initiated by Jan Tschichold in 1944.

The exhibition, presenting a selection of winning books from the competition’s past sixty years, is on show until 20 November 2004 at Schweizerische Landesbibliothek in Bern, and features a number of book designs by Lineto founding member Cornel Windlin.

The publication, beautifully designed by Julia Born, Amsterdam, is showing the Akkurat font family by Laurenz Brunner, and for the first time, beta versions of the italic and monospace versions of Akkurat. The new weights (3 italic cuts and 1 monospace) are scheduled for release on April 15, 2005.
