The 9th National Book Design Art Exhibition Excellent Works Collection
This book records the outstanding award-winning works of the 9th National Book Design Art Exhibition. The envelope, cover, and inner seal of this book all are presented in different textures in white. Only the top of the spine has a black print, black and white contrast, like a typical residential building in Jiang Nan. The segregated dimensions are engraved on the cover with nine exhibition LOGOs, forming an abstract Arabic numeral 9, symbolizing these nine exhibitions; the split graphics are the combination of the letters B and D, which represents BOOK and DESIGN respectively. Different from previous publications, this book first tried the "chronological" style of presentation - collecting information on previous exhibitions, making a "memoir" in the timeline, telling the history of the previous eight exhibitions, and the guide bar is specially set on the outside of the book cover for easy access. The overall design is a combination of practicality and appreciation, which is simple and decent with lingering charm.
