The winner of the competition, Emmanuel Laureau at Talent Sport in Paris was only one book out with his guess. The five runners up were: Yasmine Khan of Alchemy Arts (745), Alison Gadsby of David Fickling Books (742), Kai Pedersen of AKTbladet in Denmark (750), Russell Clark of Cambridge University Press (752) and Mitul Mistry of Beacon Books in Manchester (753). All five of these lucky runners up received a wonderful Biddenden Vineyard gift pack with a bottle of wine and three preserves. Emmanuel won himself the grand prize that was the luxurious hamper from Biddenden Vineyard.
There were hundreds of people that took part in the competition and the Book Mountain itself saw lots of interest from visitors and other exhibitors. So much so that we have a strong feeling there could be several copies turning up at next year’s London Book Fair, and even at Frankfurt later this year. We may have to think of something even bigger and better for next year’s show.
We would like to thank everyone for taking part in our competition and for visiting us at our stand, it was great to meet you all and we hope to see you all again at next year’s London Book Fair.
