Every year, the guys from The Bookseller (a British magazine reporting news on the publishing industry) and the Diagram Group (an information and graphics company based in London) come together for the Bookseller/Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year. This honest-to-God actual award was initially organized as a form of entertainment for the 1978 Frankfurt Book Fair and the winner was picked by a panel of judges since its initiation all the way till 2000. After which, the winner is decided via a public vote on The Bookseller’s website.
