We are pleased to announce that Usborne Publishing was a double award winner at the 2014 IPG Independent Publishing Awards, run in association with The Bookseller and The London Book Fair. Usborne Publishing picked up awards for both "Children’s Publisher of the Year" and  "Independent Publisher of the Year."

Usborne Publishing received the awards on the back of an incredibly successful 40th anniversary year. On accepting the two prizes Peter Usborne, founder of Usborne Publishing said: "I did not do this, my staff did. I'm incredibly proud."

This recent news just adds to the fantastic start to the year that Usborne Books at Home (the direct selling division of Usborne Publishing) is having. With business growth of 38% and a 28% increase in new recruits this January; more people than ever before are starting their own businesses selling award-winning Usborne children's books.
