The Bloomsbury Cookbook is proving to be both a critical success and a bestseller.

The 2014 Art Book Prize was awarded to 'Art in Oceania: A New History'. Administered by the Authors’ Club and supported by The Art Newspaper, the Art Book Prize is awarded annually to the best book on art or architecture published in English, anywhere in the world in the past year. The award aims to do for the visual arts what the MAN Booker has done for the novel.
'Amongst extremely tough competition, we awarded this year’s prize to 'Art in Oceania' – a magisterial, nearly encyclopaedic volume on a so far relatively neglected field that is beginning to attract increasing scholarly and popular interest. This one should be on every art lover’s bookshelf.'
