書籍設計在提升閱讀上佔在重要的指標,閱讀可以讓我們知道我們在世界的座標,閱讀可以拓展我們對世界的想像及了解。雖然美麗的書展好像一直都會專注在書的形體,但卻不然,因為當你在翻閱的過程中,你也在觀看圖像告訴你的故事、文字敘事呈現真實的內容,封面能夠解讀作者想表述的思想,就像每年台北電影節以城巿為主角,利用影像及聲音敘事城市的故事,書展也是,利用圖像及文字傳遠一個國家的文化及社會現象。

捷克最美麗的書自1928年開辦的書籍競賽,每年由700-800書籍選出不同類別的獎項,包含純文學、文學、青年文學、教科書、藝術書、少量出版書籍、平面設計類、目錄、學生書籍競賽、精緻印刷及插畫等11項,總共有26本得到金銀銅獎項。統計自2010-2018年全世界最美麗的書籍的競賽中,捷克曾得到金獎、二座銀奬、三座銅奨及多個入選獎。

捷克除了書籍美學的專業外,另外和台灣較相似是語言的問題,捷克人口為1100萬人口,另加斯洛伐克人口600萬人口,合計低於台灣。捷克的書籍出版較多數以捷克語為主,和台灣繁體中文相同。出版市場只服務在地人口,如何持續讓出版種類、品質及特色吸引不同族群的閱讀喜好,在台灣正在推廣美感教育及教科學美感計劃的同時,我們可以觀察得到捷克最美麗的書籍在教科書籍類別及內容設計。

The Museum of Czech Literature and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic organize the Most Beautiful Czech Books of the Year competition each year. Czech publishers, students of graphic arts and printing schools, graphic designers and institutions registered a total of 255 titles from 15 November 2017 to 17 January 2018 in the fifty-third edition of the competition, which took place this year.

The competition evaluates contemporary book designs, as well as the quality and originality of the printing and bookbinding. As has been the tradition, the author of the catalogue and the whole competition design this year is Zdeněk Ziegler, the winner of the Catalogues section of the previous year. The international jury of the competition, composed of a Technical and Artistic Committee, evaluated the graphic, printing and illustrative adaptation of publications published and printed in the Czech Republic over the past calendar year. Pavla Pauknerová, who works as a graphic design theorist at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, was elected Chair of the jury. Prizes are awarded in seven categories (Specialized literature, Fiction, Literature for Children and Young Adults, Textbooks for Schools of All Levels and Other Teaching Aids, Books on the Visual Arts, Catalogues and Bibliophilia and Art Books). The three bestplaced books are announced in each category and 50,000 CZK is awarded to the first-place winner.

The Museum of Czech Literature also grants the Arno Sáňka Prize to students of art and printing schools and, together with the Museum of Decorative Arts, a special award to a graphic artist under the age of thirty. Other prizes are awarded by the Association of Czech Bibliophiles, The Association of Czech Graphic Artists Hollar and The Association of Printing Firms, which is also responsible for setting up the Technical Committee. The awards ceremony, along with the presentation of the award-winning publications and shortlisted titles in each category, took place on 19 April 2018 in the Star Summer Palace (letohrádek Hvězda). The most beautiful Czech books were also on display in Small Villa at the Museum of Czech Literature during the Prague Museum Night or the Open House Prague Festival. In addition, visitors are able to leaf through the books at the Book World Fair, the Tabook International Festival of Small and Medium-Sized Publishers, at the Designblok International Festival in Prague, at the Moravian Gallery in Brno, as well as in regional libraries. The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and The Museum of Czech Literature ensure their participation in the competition for the most beautiful books of the world, at international fairs and at exhibitions.
