2021 British Book Design and Production Awards
The British Book Design and Production Awards took place on Monday 8 November 2021 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in Central London.
The evening was hosted by guest presenter Penny Smith. She is well known for her passion for reading and is a television and radio presenter, a newsreader and a journalist, seen regularly on BBC news. She kept guests well entertained throughout the evening, presenting a total of 19 awards.
As one of the most prestigious and popular literary events of the year, the British Book Design and Production Awards recognize the excellence of the British book design and production industry by celebrating the year’s best books. The awards are designed to represent everything that is best in British book design and are seen as the flagship event in the industry’s year. The glittering event was a night to remember, and was a wonderful celebration of the talent, technology and dedication of those who produce the country’s finest books. After a very difficult year it was wonderful to celebrate together again.
Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing, presented the award in the Educational category, sponsored by Oxford Brookes, to Thames & Hudson for I Can Draw.
