A husband and wife from Sunderland have jointly won best biography in the Costa Book Awards.

Mary and Bryan Talbot's graphic novel Dotter of Her Father's Eyes, is part personal history and part biography and tells the story of two interweaving father-daughter relationships.

The couple's book was selected from more than 550 entries and will now compete for the 2012 Costa Book of the Year.

It was the first year graphic novels were included in the shortlists.
