2014 PARIS BOOK AWARDS FESTIVAL – TOP AWARD – ART & PHOTOGRAPHY COFFEE TABLE BOOKS CATEGORY (FRANCE)
BUTTERFLIES AND ALL THINGS SWEET
A labour of love by Bonnae Gokson, Butterflies and All Things Sweet is a visual masterpiece that takes her loyal following on a journey to the roots of her creativity that have enabled her visionary cake creations, laying bare her passions, musings and ingenuity.
The global launch in October 2013 was a resounding success. Book signing events were held at JOYCE in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, culminating in a final tour in New York at a fabulous event hosted by Ralph Lauren at his 888 Madison mansion.
BUTTERFLIES AND ALL THINGS SWEET was also showcased in leading book fairs around the world. The lavish book was lauded for its groundbreaking approach to presentation, photography and narrative, breaking the mould of a traditional cake book. Widely recognised by leading publishers as one of the most successful coffee table books launched that year, it won three prestigious international awards in 2014.
