The Helvetic Centre in London is again organizing a show of the ‘most beautiful Swiss books’. The exhibition opens this Sunday with a party – guest speaker Laurenz Brunner – and runs for just four days at Cafe Oto in Dalston. On Thursday 29th, the last evening, there will be a round-table discussion of questions raised by the show. Also on display will be some of the best British books of the year. They should offer instructive contrasts with the Swiss books; certainly this will provide a very rare sighting of a cultural phenomenon once discussed on this website.
