Three hundred guests from book publishers and manufacturers gathered in London's Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on Wednesday 12 November for the 2008 British Book Design and Production Awards. The Awards were introduced by BPIF President Mike Taylor and presented by writer, broadcaster and former MP Gyles Brandreth. The annual awards are organized by the British Printing Industries Federation, Oxford Brookes University and the Publishers Association.

The winner of Best British Book was The Temple of Flora, published by The Folio Society and printed by Beacon Press. Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, published by Macmillan Children's Books, won Book of the Year.
Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, presented the award in the children's trade category, sponsored by Oxford Brookes University, to Macmillan's Emily Gravett, for Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears (also winner of Book of the Year).
