Every year we have run an advent style calendar series of blogs throughout December. This year is no different! In the past we have themed these advent calendar blogs around different themes and ideas. Last year I ran through the 'Oddities' that crop up from time to time in Osprey. The year before it was the 25 best selling titles of all time that graced the Osprey advent calendar. Before that it was 25 awesome pieces of artwork.

This year I am going to do something a little different. I have gone around and asked a few members of staff and contributors what their favourite Osprey book is. Every day in the run up to Christmas I will post up their answers. That way you can get to know a few more members of the Osprey team, get a bit of an insight into what it is like to work for Osprey, what makes us tick, and which books we love the most!

So, a big thank you to everyone who kindly volunteered to take part in this. It all kicks off tomorrow!
