Noel D’Cunha, managing editor of PrintWeek India, said, “Books have lost none of its relevance in India despite the clamouring about digital and social media platforms. The printed books continue to be the most efficient and enduring methods of delivering texts, and this category is a sign of appreciation to all the book printers across the country.”

To evaluate the awards, the PrintWeek India jury will look for the highest quality of printing married to precision in post-press and finishing operations. The entrants must submit four different books either case bound or paperback or both.
