Postcards from Home wins the 36th Annual Galley Club Publishing Awards – Book of the Year & Australian Book of the Year.
Totally unexpected, i’m blown away and greatly humbled… This is the first time ever a self-published / print-on-demand book has won either of the two main titles at the annual publishing awards. Up against major publishing houses such as Thames & Hudson, Penguin, Random House, Harper Collins and Hachette et al, this is a milestone for indie book makers everywhere!
“The Galley Club of Sydney encourages and promotes the highest standards of excellence in book and magazine production”.
A special thank you and well done!! goes out to my book making partners Momento Pro Australia for fantastic printing and binding… Teamwork!!
