ZBW bookbinder qualifies for national skilled crafts competition

Joanne Hartkopf finished her apprenticeship as a bookbinder at the top of her class.

Her perfect grade of 1.0 on her certificate qualifies her to participate in the national competition organised by the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts.

Her journeyman’s piece: a half-leather binding with coloured edges and self-coloured paper.

The decision will be made in Berlin in early December.
