Thank You for Not Nominating Our Books

Here’s an awards we’re glad none of our books won: Bookseller/Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year. This year’s winner is The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-Milligram Containers of Fromage Frais. The shortlist included Curbside Consultation of the Colon, The Large Sieve and Its Applications, Strip and Knit With Style (the author’s comment in the article is insightful), and Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring.

Past (dis)honorees include:

  • Proceedings of the Second International Symposium on Nude Mice
  • Versailles: The View From Sweden
  • Weeds in a Changing World
  • Reusing Old Graves
  • People Who Don’t Know They’re Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders and What To Do About It
  • Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers
  • A Pictorial Book of Tongue Coatings
  • Waterproofing Your Child
  • Cheese Problems Solved

I’m really trying to pick a favorite, but I just don’t think I can. Perhaps we’ll keep this list as inspiration for our next titling meeting.
