British Book Design & Production Awards 2018

Yesterday evening,  I was lucky enough to be at the British Book Design and Production Awards which is hosted and run by the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) at London's Mountcalm Hotel in Marble Arch. A very lavish and swish occasion

I was kindly invited by Fenton Smith from London print company Boss Print, who were also one of the sponsors and printed the awards catalogue. Below is pictured Fenton (left) together with photographer Giles Revell, who's book 'Cartographic Colour' published by Concentric Editions was a finalist in the awards
On arrival, the nominated entries were all out on display and it was a truly wonderful array of books and catalogues. 
The evening was opened by Charles Jarrold, Chief Executive of the BPIF...
 ...a gathering of over 200 people from the world of publishing, print and design - and a few paper people in there as well!
Congratulation to all the finalists and award winners. You can read more about the entries and the winners here: Below shows all the winners on stage...
Boss Print sponsored the category for 'Self Published Books' and they also produced the awards catalogue and the exquisitely produced boxes, in which the catalogues were locked away until the awards concluded and the keys were distributed so everyone could get their hands on the lovely catalogues.

It was a great evening - good company and food and my thanks go to Boss Print for inviting me and it was great meeting up with many other old friends on the table too.
