Infographic: Funny and Weird Book Awards

Weird-and-funny-book-awards-infographicEveryone knows of the Nobel Prize for literature, and other prestigious awards, but not nearly a  awards are as sought after as the Man Booker prize.

The book industry has its own equivalents to the Ig Nobel Prize, including the Literary Review’s Bad Sex in Fiction Award. And as you can see in the following infographic, that is just the beginning.

There’s also the Bookseller/Diagram Prize, and the Weird Ass Picture Book Award, and the Shorty (which I wouldn’t necessarily include in this list of undesirable awards).

But that is about all there is in the way of ignominious book awards; the infographic only lists the four awards, and I could not find any others.

Do you know of one we missed?
