The Bookseller 100 of 2018

7 December 2018

The Bookseller has published The Bookseller 100,  its annual list of the 100 most influential people in UK publishing. See The Bookseller 7 December 2018.

The list is made up of publishers, retailers, authors, members of the media and more.

Since 2012, The Bookseller has named a 101st person - someone in the industry they think has stood out just a little bit more than the others. In 2018, Charlie Redmayne, CEO of HarperCollins, was named as the 101st person.

Congratulations to everyone on the list but a special mention to:

  • Nick Barley, Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival (Fairs/Fests/PR)
  • Jamie Byng, Chief Executive of Canongate Books (Evergreen and Publisher)
  • Rosamund de la Hey, Owner of The Mainstreet Trading Company (Retailer)
  • Meryl Halls, Managing Director of the Booksellers Association (Trade Bodies and New Entry)
  • Robert Macfarlane, author, and Jackie Morris, illustrator (Creator and New Entry)
  • and of course Marion Sinclair, Chief Executive, Publishing Scotland (Trade Bodies)
