Judges' Comments Alan Deare, a bit of a veteran of this award, sensitively portrays Cameron Petley’s personality and character in Hunter from the Heartland. The combination of typefaces, the composition, the textured paper – we loved it all! The woodblock-style type works well, thick and thin, chunky but delicate, and really enhances this book. Combined with Eames Century Modern to portray Petley’s voice, the book feels balanced and calm.
