All of the shortlisted books are specially bound by a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders and presented to the author at the Prizegiving Ceremony. The books from this year will be on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum from the end of October to approximately the end of December.

The binders only have about four or five weeks to complete the book.
