7 Penguin Random House titles nominated for the 2016 British Book Design and Production Awards

The finalists of the 2016 British Book Design and Production Awards have been revealed, with Penguin Random House nominated for an astounding 8 awards with 7 different titles.

Leading the way is Penguin Press' Coralie Bickford-Smith and The Fox and The Star, which is a finalist in both the Children's Trade 9 to 16 Years and the Best Jacket / Cover Design awards. This is the latest in a series of nominations and awards for the title, which won Waterstones' Book of the Year award in 2015.



Jonathan Cape have two finalists for the Graphic Novels prize with William Goldsmith's The Bind and David Hughes' The Pillbox, whilst Ebury are nominated for Yotam Ottolenghi's NOPI: The Cookbook in the Lifestyle Illustrated category.

As well as the two nods for The Fox and The Star, Penguin Press have been recognised a further three times, through the Richard Dawkins reissues (Interactive Multimedia Book), Grayson Perry's Sketchbooks (Photographic Books, Art / Architecture Mongraphs) and Graham Robb's Cols and Passes of the British Isles (Trade Illustrated).

Our friends at Unbound also have a finalist, with Danny Scheinmann's The Half Life of Joshua Jones picking up a nomination in the Digitally Printed Books category.

The awards, run by the the British Printing Industries Federation, in association with Oxford Brookes University and the Publishers Association, seek to promote and reward innovative book design and outstanding craftsmanship in their creation, in both physical and digital formats. 19 awards will be given out on the night, with the ceremony taking place at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge on the 10th of November. The finalists were picked by a panel of five judges, in which 575 entries were whittled down to 82.
