Raphael: From Urbino to Rome published by the National Gallery and written by Tom Henry of the School of Arts & Humanities (with Hugo Chapman and Carol Plazzotta) has won the prestigious Book of the Year Award at the annual British Book Design and Production Awards. The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies has worked on the organisation of these awards along with the British Printing Industries Federation and the Publishers Association since they were re-launched four years ago. These awards celebrate the quality of book design and production produced by UK publishers and UK printers. Adrian Bullock , with support from Publishing students, plays an important role in these awards which includes the cataloguing of the books being submitted and hosting the judging here at Brookes each summer.

Publishing department visits the Frankfurt Book Fair

Several staff from the publishing department accompanied by 30 students from the MA Publishing Programme have returned from a highly successful visit to the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Many publishing companies obliged the Brookes visitors with appointments on their stands and they gave much valuable information about the way that the rights deals are struck at Frankfurt and at Book Fairs generally. Although this was a short visit, the 'Frankfurter Buchmesse' is an intense but inspiring adventure.

Long Live the Book

The International Book Conference finished today with presentations from a range of speakers. The overall conclusion was that the Book will not die and in fact is flourishing.
