Corine Literature Prize

The Corine – International Book Prize, as it is officially called, is a German literature prize created by the Bavarian Landesverband of the Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels first awarded in 2001. It is awarded to German and international "authors for excellent literary achievements and their recognition by the public."


The "Corine" trophy is a figurine produced by the Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory. "Corine" was first manufactured in 1760 as part of a sixteen-figure set of commedia dell'arte performers in porcelain, designed by the German modeller Franz Anton Bustelli (1723–1763).[1]
