One of the three covers we designed for Ahab Edições in 2009 – 'A Ilha' – was selected as 'best fiction cover' (Melhor Design de Literatura) in the 3rd edition of the Ler/Booktailors annual publishing awards. The awards were attributed as the result of on-line voting by the public and a jury consisting of 20 professionals from the world of publishing and journalism. An unexpected bonus was a special 'best new publisher' prize awarded by the jury to Ahab Edições for 'the meticulous selection of their title list together with the outstanding editorial and design quality of their publishing' (Prémio Especial Editora Revelação, “pela selecção criteriosa de títulos associada à extraordinária qualidade editorial e gráfica de tudo o que publica”).
