At this years British Book Design and Production Awards
the myth about large companies always winning the prizes was knocked
out of the park when The Fleece Press, a one-man operation and JW Northend
printers from Yorkshire, walked away with the biggest award of the night
Book of the Year for "The Inward Laugh."
The Best British Book was won by Daniel Katz Gallery for "Fired
Up," which was designed by Philip Lewis and printed by Empress
Litho, in a category that saw tough competition.
This years awards saw more entries than ever with an increase
in first time entrants from smaller independent publishers, galleries
and design houses, showing that you dont need to be big to be
the best. AVA Publishing walked away with two awards for Brand Series
Identity and Tertiary Education.
AVA Publishing, Butler and Tanner, Thames & Hudson, Dorling Kindersley,
Daniel Katz/ Empress Litho, Sylph Editions, The Penguin Group, Philip
Allan Updates, Harcourt and Simon & Schuster were also on the winners
podium. The event saw over 250 of the UKs best printers, publishers
and designers congregate to celebrate the Best of British Book Design
and Production at Londons Millennium Mayfair on Wednesday 15 November.
