‘La Belle Sauvage’ selected as Waterstones Book of the Year

UK bookselling chain Waterstones has selected Philip Pullman’s La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One (Penguin) as its Book of the Year for 2017.

The title was chosen by a Waterstones panel from a shortlist of seven.

‘This is a winner that is going to bring a lot of pleasure to an ever-widening audience and we could not be more pleased to play our part in its success,’ said Waterstones MD James Daunt.

Waterstones has released a special edition of La Belle Sauvage with ‘an exclusive cloth jacket, enhanced by gold foil and embossed finishes, a gold ribbon marker and gold endpapers with London and Oxford skylines’. Each special edition also contains one of six Ex Libris daemon bookplates.
