We’re delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Design a National Book Token competition for World Book Day 2020. National Book Tokens and World Book Day challenged young booklovers across the UK and Ireland to make their mark and design a National Book Tokens gift card with the theme of Share a Story. We judged thousands of fantastically creative designs and whittled down the entries to pick the final seven.
