Winner for the Folio Society at the British Book Design Awards

Philip K. Dick’s Selected short stories won the Literature category. “The cutout of the case suggests Dick’s fantasy world,” said the judges. “24 full color plates from specially commissioned artists and details in the slipcase itself testify to a superlative level of attention to detail.”

The origins of totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt won the Scholarly, Academic & Reference Book category. The judges called it: “A beautiful and striking book, the content perfectly complemented by the weight, size and shear strength of the format and design. Flawless attention to detail in the finishing makes this an excellent collector’s item.”

Tom Walker, Publishing Director at Folio said: “We were blown away by the response from the judges, what a thrill! It’s a testament to the brilliant team at Folio that even in these strange pandemic years we continued to innovate and expand the possibilities of print book. The standard of creativity across the board was outstanding. We are truly going through a golden period in book design and it’s a privilege to be at the forefront of it.”

Kate Grimwade, Production Director commented: “We are all delighted with Folio’s success. Folio is passionate about exploring dynamic and innovative ways of producing exquisite books. Winning these awards is recognition of our continued commitment and passion for design and production excellence. .”
