The Royal Air Force Museum is proud to announce that its ‘RAF Centenary Anthology 1918 – 2018’ published in partnership with Extraordinary Editions has won the Best British Book category at the British Book Design and Production Awards 2018. Exemplifying the highest standards of book design, production and printing, this annual award is given only to the publication judged to be the best of all books published, printed, designed and bound in Great Britain.Citing their reason for the award the judging panel stated: ‘This stunning leather-bound book stood out from the crowd due to its beautiful inlaid leather with exceptional foiling and blind tooling to every part of the cover. Every page has been sympathetically reproduced and expertly printed preserving the essence of the original document. It is a great British book for a great British institution.’
Martin Morgan, owner of Extraordinary Editions and publisher of the RAF Centenary Anthology stated:‘Extraordinary Editions are especially proud to be awarded Best British Book for the RAF Centenary Anthology. We set out to create a publication that both commemorated and celebrated a great British institution and that was a fitting tribute to the RAF’s Centenary. The award is also testimony to the incredible amount of hard work and support we received from across the RAF family, especially our colleagues at the RAF Museum London and the Air Historical Branch.’
Karen Whitting, Director of Content and Programmes at the Royal Air Force Museum said: ‘We have been delighted to work in partnership with Extraordinary Editions to produce this unique volume, commemorating and celebrating the RAF’s Centenary. The combination of material carefully selected from the archives of the Museum and Air Historical Branch with the thoughtful design and wonderful craftsmanship from Martin and his team, has delivered an exceptional publication.’ The RAF Commemorative Anthology consists of 650 pages of documents, orders, operational reports, maps, air diagrams, diaries, letters and ephemera, recording RAF life over its first 100 years. It measures an impressive 39 x 27 cm, so that original documentation can be reproduced at full size.From General Smut’s memorandum on the need for an air force to the latest air actions, the book presents both a history of the Service and a series of fascinating glimpses into RAF life, operations and policy. Among the many extraordinary documents included in the book are the leaflet dropped over German lines telling them of Von Richthofen’s death, the tragic last written note from Arthur Aaron VC and the secret clandestine letters from an imprisoned Douglas Bader.
