British Book Design and Production Awards Winners

Logo 2016

The British Book Design and Production Awards were held on 10 November at the dazzling Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, central London.

Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE was the host for the evening – best known in households across the country for her children’s programmes such as ‘Playschool’ and ‘CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories’. In 2013 Floella was made a Fellow of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and throughout 2016 has been promoting their Shakespeare in schools initiative. She entertained guests with her literary anecdotes and presented a total of 19 awards to the fortunate recipients.

The Folio Society were the outright winner of the awards, finishing at the top of three categories including Brand/Series Identity for their Folio Collectables; Best British Book for their reproduction of Alice in Wonderland; and also the coveted prize of Book of the Year for the same title.

Congratulations to all winners and finalists, listed below. Entry for the 2017 BBDPAs will open in March. For further information please contact Heena Bulsara, BPIF Marketing Executive, at
