The prize, unique in its kind and now highly regarded, honours the best architectural books of a year. 100 architectural and art book publishers from all over the world accepted the joint invitation to participate. A jury made up of external experts and representatives of DAM met to select the year’s ten best architectural books from 227 entries. They based their decision on criteria such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation, and topicality.

The award ceremony will take place on October 16, 2019 at 7.30 p.m. in the library of the DAM, Hedderichstr. 108 – 110. All award-winning books will be presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair from October 16 to 20, 2019 (Hall 4.1, Zentrum Bild, stand K 109).
