The Glory Glory Nights has been shortlisted for Illustrated Sports Book of the Year at this year’s British Sports Book Awards. You can see the full shortlists across all categories at that link, and it’s a very strong field right across the board. It’s easy to sound insincere with these things, but me, Adam Powley and Doug Cheeseman really are honoured to be shortlisted in such company. The awards ceremony is at Lord’s on 21 May.
The news came on a morning in which I also found out that economia, one of the magazines I work on at Progressive Customer Publishing, has been shortlisted for three awards at the PPAs, the publishing industry Oscars. Editor Richard Cree is up for business editor of the year; art director Ewan Buck for business media designer of the year; and the magazine itself for customer magazine of the year. PCP has also been shortlisted in the publishing innovator of the year category.
This is possibly the only time you’ll read about a book on the history of Spurs in Europe and a customer magazine for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales in the same post, so savour it.
