Bibliophile Brief Winners Announced
After much deliberation the Bibliophile brief winners were announced this week by Kieran, Mireille and Hans Burkhardt from BUBU. Kingston’s energetic students submitted 20 final projects and such was the quality of their creativity and invention (a book which doubled as a table lamp, a living book that required regular watering and a book that inflated to the width of any given bookshelf to name just a few two winners and three runners up were chosen.
The five selected works (shown below) will be individually prototyped by BUBU in their Zurich factory and the two winners will get to witness this as well as tour the production halls and Bindorama book gallery space in an upcoming visit.
One prototype will ultimately be chosen to be produced in a run of 2000 as BUBU’s annual New Year Book for 2015.
