British Book Design and Production Awards, Wednesday 24 January 2024, De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, London
The winners of the 2023 British Book Design and Production Awards have finally been revealed!
Members of the print, publishing, and book production industries joined together once again at the breathtaking De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London for a celebration of storytelling.
Hosted by prolific Graphic Designer and Book Illustrator, Anita Mangan, whose entertaining presentation evoked plenty of laughs to kick off the show, the awards showcased the best talent in British book production across 18 categories celebrating everything from cover design to sustainability.
This year’s competition was a real page-turner, with Generation Press taking home the trophies in four different categories, and Kingsbury Press winning three.
The grand prize of Book of the Year went to Hurtwood for Out in the Cold, a stunning two-volume book showcasing Danie Ferreira's photography, beautifully presented in a screen-printed box.
Each guest received a copy of the Book of the Night, designed by En-Te and printed by Halstan on high quality paper provided by Sappi, which this year followed the event’s theme of Storytellers with a striking die-cut cover by Diamond.
We’d like to thank this year’s judges, Michael Burman, Nancy Roberts, Max Lilley and Lucy Swanston, as well as the supporters and sponsors without whom the BBD&PAs wouldn’t be possible: BookMachine, Canon, Halstan, IFS, Lighthouse IT, Muller Martini, Oxford Brookes University, Sappi, The Bookseller, The Printing Charity and Winter & Company.
