Samples included creatively themed books, notebooks and a Scarfe cocktail menu with overfoil effects and lovely interactive touches such as postcard and bar bill – a potent tonic for a book sector under attack from cheaper imports and digital editions.

Books on the 100 First Women, Aston Martin and Fraser Yachts caught the collective eye of the judges, as did The Kashi House project showing Sikh art. All agreed this sample was “outstanding”.

A Rising People from the Brian Burns Collection of Irish Art got a rise from the judges who praised “a really well put together entry” from the printer in Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland. It included the Humewood Book, Aston Martin DB32 Coupe Book and a book on the ceramic artist John Ffrench.
