Prizes and Awards

  • Extraordinary Anywhere won the best non-illustrated book at the PANZ (Publishers Association of New Zealand) Book Design Award 2017. The following citation was given at the awards on 20 July 2017 by the judges: ‘Intriguing and playful cover assuming the language of maps, but divulging coordinates of poetry or location details. The restricted colour palette works, and the change of pace and the change of place with the sections, the chapter intros and openers gives relief or a cause to pause. The qualities of this book speak for themselves’. http://www.bookdesignawards.co.nz/2017-winners/ - PANZ (Publishers Association of New Zealand Inc) (2017)
