The Tony Fothergill Book Collecting Prize is back for another year. If you have more than ten books then you're officially a book collector! Tell us about your collection for a chance to win £500 and entry to the National Book Collecting Prize.

"I am thrilled to have won this prize, and am very proud of my collection!  To have it recognised in such a way feels extremely rewarding." 

Elizabeth Dunnett, 2019 prize winner
