GALLEY CLUB AWARDS 2009
The winners of the 2009 Galley Club Awards have been announced.

The awards, in their 33rd year, celebrate excellence in book and magazine production. The ceremony was held on Friday 19 June at Darling Harbour, Sydney, and was hosted by comedian James O’Loughlin. Around 150 industry professionals were in attendance. Book of the Year went to Earth, published by Millennium House. The full list of recipients can be viewed at the Galley Club website, http://www.galleyclub.com.au.

End of Press Release.

As I was one of the cartographers involved on this project, I did 80+ maps of islands around Africa, South America and in the Pacific Ocean, I am of course very pleased to see this absolutely wonderful atlas win an award. It’s been a fun project to work on and the end result is looking absolutely stunning:
