STUDIO SONDA, Vizinada / CITY LIBRARY POREC / 2017
The Festival of used books Booktiga (Pore?, Croatia) Booktiga awards each year the most read book in the region of Istria. Our task was to create a suitable award the author will be given. The festival and the award are organized by the Pore? City Library, and the client wanted a tool to promote even more the Festival and the Library.
Instead of creating a statue the author will be given, a library sample of the awarded book was sent on a one-month journey through the Istrian libraries. The readers were invited in person to write their comments. Almost on each page they wrote an emotional message addressing the author. As a reward, the author received her own book back, but filled with comments and wrapped in a golden paper. At the same time the story about the festival is spread and the number of visitors grows. During the festival the award will be solemnly given to the author, and all the readers who created it will be part of the story.
