Congratulations to Hugh McMillan and his publisher Hugh Bryden on winning the Award last night for his pamphlet – Postcards From the Hedge.
Jayne Wilding and I were joint runners-up for Sky blue notebook from the Pyrenees, with the other runner up being Mary Johnston for A Ring O Sangs.
It was a splendid evening, with over 70 gathered in the old Board Room of the National Library of Scotland, and I’m still a bit shattered this morning.
It’s the first time I’ve shared an award for my publishing efforts, but the truth is that the pamphlet design was a joint effort between Jayne and I. She had such good ideas on layout and design, and it was a stimulating time working on it. Definitely worth all the effort.
Other publishing news is that Mary Johnston’s Fa did she think she is?, and David Purdie’s The Godothin, are both finalised and at the printers, with launches being planned for late June.
I’m off to the Gardening Scotland show this morning, and I may fall asleep while DunbarJane’s driving.
