The Wittockiana and the Atelier du Livre de Mariemont present an exhibition devoted to contemporary practices and research in book design and bookbinding in Belgium.

ABOUT

The Wittockiana, which bears the name of its founder, was created by Michel Wittock. During his lifetime, he assembled an impressive collection of books, manuscripts and autographs.

The Wittockiana is the museum of book arts and bookbinding in Brussels. Its collection, which comprises almost 3,000 works, is made up of unique books: all of them carry their material history, the testimony of an artist, a bookbinder, or the mark of their author.

In 2010, the Wittockiana was recognised as a museum by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles. Thanks to this recognition, it can now be accredited as a museum of public utility, at the service of the community and of the book. In addition, Michel Wittock donated his collection to the King Baudouin Foundation, which also ensured the collection’s continuity by acquiring the building that houses it. In this way, Michel Wittock’s work lives on today.
