2019 British Book Design and Production Awards
Marylebone’s The Landmark hotel was host to the 2019 British Book Design and Production Awards on 21 November 2019, featuring the best books British publishing has to offer competing in such categories as Brand/Series Identity, Best Jacket/Cover Design, Best Student Book and the coveted Book of the Year.
The awards were hosted by Konnie Huq, British television presenter and writer whose first book, Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World, is set for publication in February 2020.
Boss Print stole the show with photography book North Northwest, winning both Best British Book and Book of the Year. The judges commented that 'Even amongst the highest of competition, this entry captivated us. There was not one element that did not fit in. The book was seamlessly put together as a whole with beautiful production and design, making it a truly worthy winner.'
Adam Blades, Lecturer in Media, Journalism and Publishing at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing, presented the award for best Educational Book and Exhibition Catalogue, sponsored by Oxford Brookes University.
Congratulations to all the winners. Once again the prestigious British Book Design and Production Awards highlights a publishing and print industry bursting with creativity and passion for beautiful books.
