The 2019 Book of British Luxury was launched on 13th March during a party at Fortnum & Mason, created in association with Wild about Flowers and Moriarty. Designed for the second year by Studio Buffalo, the book features a stunning cover specially created by Timorous Beasties; papers by G . F Smith; 12 editorial essays from writers including Justine Picardie, Alexandra Shulman, Daniel Franklin, Alex Bilmes, Lydia Slater and Lucia van der Post; and 64 insightful member contributions, with the book printed and bound in East Sussex by Pureprint.

The launch party theme was created by Moriarty Events using blooms and foliage from Wild About Flowers to bring the theatrical Timorous Beasties-designed front cover to life.
