Celebrates Award Win

Best Digital Book”

“The Redtailed Hawk”

Designed and typeset by Moyhill Publishing

 Printed and bound by RPM Print & Design, Chichester.

A sell-out audience of book manufacturers, publishers and suppliers to the book industry attended the annual Awards Dinner at The Brewery in London on Tuesday 9 November.

 Eleven awards were presented, recognising achievement in all aspects of British book production.


The British Book Design & Production Awards are unique in the British book industry in that they are based solely on the design and production qualities of each book. The Awards are organised by the BPIF, The Publishers Association and Oxford Brookes University.

Cover "The Redtailed Hawk"

This ambitious Spanish book contains over 140 photographs and diagrams, many in colour.

Design work began in late March 2004 and the book went to print on May 15th, just six weeks later.

Faced with time restrictions due to the Redtailed Hawk’s breeding season - and with visitors arriving in Madrid from all over the world for the International launch of the book - Moyhill approached RPM Print & Design in Chichester to print a limited edition presentation set. This partnership between Moyhill and RPM resulted in the winning entry in the “Digital Books” category of the British Design & Production Awards held on Tuesday 9th November at The Brewery in London.


 The team at Moyhill consists of Sally Cronin, an author and broadcaster who deals with the marketing before and after publication of their books and David Cronin who focuses on book design and cover design.

Sally Cronin says that being an author herself has been invaluable. This makes her fully aware of how important it is for a writer to see their dreams of a published book become a reality. She says “David designed my first two books and his attention to detail and interpretation of my ideas made me realise how important this stage of a book’s development really is.”

Following the successful Launch of the book, in Madrid, in June 2004, The Redtailed Hawk was then published for general distribution through Trafford Publishing.
