Ladies, A Plate has taken out the Best Book award at the PANZ Book Design Awards. Designed by Alan Deare from Inhouse Design, it also won the Best Illustrated Book.

It is just right”, says Peter Gilderdale, the convener of judges. He noted the cover “turns the nostalgia crisp and contemporary”.
All the winning books are below.
