The Image of the Book (Podoba Knjige) was an exhibition of visual communication students
at the Academy od Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The exhibition was developed as part of the Ljubljana World Book Capital 2010 project.
Main objective of the exhibiton was the representation of student books to wider and professional,
local and international audiances with the aim of reaching a new level of visual culture in this segment
of the Slovenian graphic design profession.
The exhibition was introduced twice. Once in MGLC (International Centre of Graphic Arts), Tivoli castle,
Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the second time in Trubar Literature House, Stritar street, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
A major part of the project was this catalogue/book, which features all of the exhibited work in a inovative way, with the same objective as the exhibition — reaching a new level of visual culture.
It achieves this with the use of different techniks of design and print, binding and so on.
Grafikarna played only a certain part in the process of developing this project.
We cooperated with Radovan Jenko, profesor of visual communications and Tanja Semion, designer.
This project was financed by the Municipality of Ljubljana and Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Ljubljana.
Our work was done "pro bono".
