Sandstone Win Publisher of the Year

We are delighted to have received the Saltire Society Publisher of the Year Award at the Society’s annual awards event on Tuesday November 11, this year held at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh.

We'd like to say a mighty ‘thank you’ to all our employees, close associates in selling, design, typesetting, print, retail and all other sharers of this difficult location where art meets business, and of course to our authors. Most of all though, we thank our readers because it is with you we have our conversation, even though we never meet.

Executive Director of the Saltire Society Jim Tough said: “The Publisher of the Year award is a very recent addition to the Saltire Literary Awards.

"Once again, this year’s shortlist was very strong and shows the Scottish publishing industry to be in fine fettle. All of the companies shortlisted showed evidence of the creativity and adaptability needed to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace.

"My congratulations go to Sandstone Press for winning this year’s award. I am sure we will see their business continue to thrive and develop in the year ahead and beyond.”

Sandstone Press Managing Director Robert Davidson said: "Thank you to Creative Scotland for supporting us, thank you to Publishing Scotland for guiding us, and thank you to the Saltire Society for these wonderful awards. Thank you above all, to the people who buy our books, because they are our world.”
