Gwerfyl Pierce Jones, Director of the Books Council, said: 'Publishing in Wales has lost one of its great benefactors. Alun Creunant Davies was the first Director of the Books Council and took up his position on St David’s Day 1965. Under his leadership and vision, the Council grew from its humble origins to become a key agency in the field of publishing in Wales.

Although he retired in 1987 he maintained a keen interest in the work of the Books Council and was currently Chairman of the Friends. He will be sorely missed.'
