Coming Soon to a Blog Near You.

It is fast coming up to the time of year when the book world, in the U K at least, becomes Man Booker mad.

The Man Booker award is a celebration of the last years literary out-put and ends with a huge slap up meal, complete with the BBC, interviews, winners and not so winners.

Each one of the six finalists is presented with a cheque for a few grand ( the winner gets a huge cheque ) and a presentation copy of their book.
It is my pleasure to have been selected to be one of the Man Booker binders for this year. I have created a blog site
'Diary of a Man Booker Binder' and will keep you up to date with all the highs and lows in the four or so weeks I have in which to do the binding.

I hope that it will offer an insight in to a little known part of the Man Booker awards and for those who are interested in the art and craft of book binding and arts a glimpse of what it takes to make a Designed Binding.
