Mo Yan & Alice Munro – A Book Binding Exhibition


The Nobel Museum Book Binding Exhibition started in 2006, after Harold Pinter received the Nobel Prize in Literature the year before. Since then, Swedish and international book binders have been invited to interpret the Literature laureates in their proper medium: in books. 

Opening in April 2015 is an exhibition where Swedish, Chinese, and Canadian book binders have been invited to bind works of the Nobel Laureates Mo Yan and Alice Munro. 

The exihibition is a collaboration between the Nobel Museum, Svenska Bokbinderiföreningen, Bokbindarmästareföreningen and Bokbindare-Gesällskapet.
