British Book Design and Production Awards 2017
The British Book Design and Production Awards took place on Thursday 16 November 2017 at the Millenium Hotel in Mayfair, Central London.
The evening was hosted by guest presenter, Jenny Eclair, the first ever woman to win the Perrier Award for comedy at the 1995 Edinburgh Festival and who is well known for TV appearances on Loose Women, QI, I’m a Celebrity and Grumpy Old Women, as well as for her accomplished novels and writings.
As one of the most prestigious and popular literary events of the year, the British Book Design and Production Awards recognize the excellence of the British book design and production industry by celebrating the year’s best books. The awards are designed to represent everything that is best in British book design and are seen as the flagship event in the industry’s year. The event is supported by the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF), Oxford Brookes University, and the Publishers Association.
Thames and Hudson were the overall winner of the awards, finishing at the top of two categories including Children’s Trade 9-16 for Think and Make like an Artist and Best Trade Illustrated Book for Bitten by Witch Fever. The winner of the Book of the Year was Havana by Lesley Gerry Editions.
Beverley Tarquini, Senior Lecturer at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, presented the award in the Educational category, sponsored by Oxford Brookes, to Walker Books for A World of Information.
A panel consisting of industry experts from the design, publishing and production industries met over two days at Oxford Brookes University to select the shortlisted entries and winners.
