Industry experts from the areas of design, publishing and production will judge the entries and stamp the book that outshines the rest with the title of ‘Book of the Year’.
The deadline for book entries is Friday 28 June 2019. The awards will be presented at a dazzling ceremony on 21 November at the iconic Landmark Hotel in London.
